Personal profile

Research expertise

I am a marine ecologist working on the development of sustainable production systems for marine animals and plants. My interest in the development of the blue economy focuses both on Europe and on small island developing states.

I co-ordinate the €5.7M EU FP7 project IDREEM, lead the SAMS Centre for Aquaculture, and am an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of the Seyshelles.
