Research interests

My broad interests are in seascape and fish ecology. My research is based around understanding what fish are found where and why particularly in this changing environment. I am currently supported by the NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub where we are building a greater understanding of the ecological and economic significance of rocky reef in Commonwealth Marine Parks, which tend to be mesophotic reef.


  Please note that only publications relevant to mesophotic reefs are indexed.
