Main research interests

My research focuses on the economics of coastal and marine ecosystems, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary bioeconomic modelling. More information is available in my vision document and my vision presentation.

Ongoing research projects

Benefiting from Innovations in Sustainable and Equitable Tuna Management in the Coral Triangle and Western Pacific (BESTTuna)

The overall objective of the project is to study the design of effective and equitable state and market-based governance arrangements to achieve sustainable trans-boundary tuna management in the Coral Triangle and Western Pacific.
