I am a marine conservation biologist, whose main research interests focus on conservation planning, natural resource management, and on anthropogenic and climate change impacts on marine mega-fauna, especially marine turtles. My passion for the ocean and marine mega-fauna and my concerns about their future has prompted me to develop a research program that addresses real-world issues and focuses on connecting people to science for effective change.

I have worked closely with government, non-government organizations, and Indigenous agencies throughout Australia, Barbados, Brazil, Kenya, Madagascar, USA, and Vanuatu.
