I am a PhD student at BARCO LAB with particular interests in coral reef ecology, anthropogenic impacts and Marine Protected Areas.

In the Caribbean, human impacts on reef ecosystems have long been recognised. However, paucity of information or incorrect assumptions regarding underlying change mechanisms often result in poor understanding of ecosystem functioning and inappropriate protection measures. My research seeks to address these issues with a particular focus on the application of technology and innovative techniques.
