My primary research interest focuses on the effects of habitat degradation on the ecology of reef fishes. In particular I investigate how competitive interactions between reef fishes are affected by changes in both the abundance and quality of the coral habitat. A second research interest involves control methods for outbreaks of the crown-of-thorns starfish, Acanthaster planci (COTS).
