Senior Lecturer in marine ecology, UNSW Sydney

I'm a marine ecologist based at The University of New South Wales.

My research focuses on the ecology and conservation of coastal marine communities such as seagrass meadows, kelp forests and coral reefs. I am particularly interested in the effects of human impacts on these communities and much of my recent work focuses on the ecological impacts of climate change.
