I'm a marine ecologist turned conservationist, working on diverse issues facing ocean conservation and fisheries management in tropical coastal environments. For the past decade my focus has been on promoting co-management and local management of traditional fisheries to improve biodiversity conservation and livelihood sustainability outcomes. More recently this work has evolved to span marine protected area development, fisheries policy reform, aquaculture, blue carbon, and public health. My work as a social entrepreneur aims to improve the financial sustainability of marine conservation initiatives, in particular by applying market-based approaches to supporting resource management efforts.
