About me

PhD student and Science communicator, with research interests within:

  • Conservation and Ecology of coral reefs and seagrass beds
  • Fisheries management
  • Near-shore / Small-scale fisheries
  • Marine protected areas (MPAs) and Sustainability
  • Locally- and community-managed fisheries closures (or LMMAs)

 

Research project

The overall aim of my PhD studies is to examine effects of contrasting types of marine protected areas on seagrass- and coral communities. My research focuses on how marine fisheries closures affect two important ecosystem service providers; corals and seagrasses, and their associated benthic communities, fish assemblages and ecological processes. Studies are carried out in Kenya (East Africa) within community-managed and government-managed fisheries closures.
