Research Interests: Small scale fisheries, gender and fisheries development, vulnerability of coastal communities to hazards, social marketing

As a researcher, I like to pursue studies that are not only attuned to the issues on the ground but also can provide decision-support for local leaders and coastal resource managers. I am particularly interested in small scale fisheries because this remains a marginalized sector in my home country.
