Research interests

My main interests include the conservation of marine megafauna and their habitat in the Indo-pacific. I've used BRUV to assess populations and habitat use of sharks up to 100m deep, and now looking to reach 300m. Used satellite telemetry, TDR tags, and Acoustic Telemetry as well to understand horizontal and vertical movement and interaction with fisheries. Working on a project with a manned submarine in Southeast Asia and looking forwards to build more collaborations.
