PhD candidate


I am working in collaboration with the Ministry of Fisheries in the Kingdom of Tonga to provide a national assessment of the current state of their coral reefs, as well as of the impact of their MPA network. In addition my research focuses on developing novel techniques for assessing MPA impact, or the actual difference conservation can make, which incorporates accounting for confounding factors and moves beyond traditional approaches. The project is supervised by Geoff Jones, Tom Bridge, Bob Pressey and Georgina Gurney.
