I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar and faculty researcher at the Marine Science Institute, UC Santa Barbara. I joined the McCauley lab in 2018 after obtaining my PhD from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and James Cook University in 2018.

I am a Marine Ecologist and Conservationist and specialise in coral reef fish ecology. The main objective of my current project, the Interactive Dynamics of Reef Fisheries and Human Health, is to understand the interactions between coral reefs and human communities in Kiribati.

 

 

I have always had a true passion for exploration, adventure, and photography. Everyone has a story to tell and people tell their stories in different ways. That story defines us.

My research and fieldwork brings me to remote islands, inspiring locations, and deep into new cultures. I use underwater and aerial photography and videography to share my journey.

L E A R N

My research addresses three key aspects of marine science that directly inform conservation strategies. My first objective focuses on the interactions between coral reefs and human communities. The second research topic focuses on population and community responses of reef fishes to changes in habitat structure, with particular reference to coral bleaching and habitat complexity. Lastly, reef fish ecology is my background and I continue to focus on experimental and observational research.
