Om mig

PhD student and Science communicator, with research interests within:

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

 

Research project

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.

 

Science communication

I am an enthusiastic science communicator and I am keen on the challenge of making complex research easy-to-understand and communicate its wider relevance to society. As a part of the department’s communication group, I am responsible for department’s Instagram account and Facebook page.
