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 projects on biochemical properties of fish gametes, 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.
