Teaching Areas:

Within the Bachelor of Science I teach the following papers; Form and Function of Plants and Animals, Fish and Aquatic Plants and Environmental Risk Assessment. At the postgraduate level I teach the paper Marine Ecosystems where the ecosystem functions of organisms are examined in detail. 

Research Areas:

I am interested in ecosystem functions, conservation, fisheries management in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, phylogenetic systematics, and sustainable and environmentally friendly aquaculture.

I am currently supervising postgraduate students in invasive ecology, mangrove fish biodiversity and habitat utilization. Prospective postgraduate students interested in any of the above areas should contact me via email with a profile and academic CV. (note: students interested in tropical research in the Pacific Islands must acquire own funding)


I’ll be attending the 2015 NZ Marine Sciences Society Conference between 6-9 July at University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand.
