I am an ecosystem ecologist currently working at the Simon FS Li Marine Science Laboratory, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, after spending 20 years in Australia researching its magnificent mangrove ecosystems.

My work as a scientist has taken me to most tropical marine environments of the world, particularly Southeast Asia.

Research Interest

My research focuses on the trophodynamics and other functional aspects of tropical estuarine ecosystems. My recent work tries to emphasise the application of current scientific knowledge to the conservation of these ecosystems amidst rapid environmental changes, particularly in the tropical region.

I also study the biology and ecology of crustaceans, particularly brachyuran crabs.

Please contact me for collaboration opportunities.
