I am investigating the social, economic and ecological flows that occur within and between ecosystems and the resultant impacts of these flows on social, economic and environmental sustainability.

I am interested in the threats posed to livelihoods and the economy, food security and lifestyles from a changing global environment as well as mitigation, adaptation and human behavioural changes within coupled physical, social and ecological systems.

My previous research has focused on the value of seagrass meadows as valuable nursery habitat for commercially important fish species.
