Coastal marine ecosystems are among the most productive and biodiverse environments on earth and are under threat from overexploitation by growing populations, compounded by climate change. Conducted in the prospective Murujuga World Heritage Area, this project is a convergence of two research themes central to coastal management, seascape connectivity and nursery function. It aims to identify key seascape components and configurations that underpin the replenishment of fish populations and  to clarify carbon pathways by quantifying the sources and cycling of organic matter supporting marine food webs. 

PhD thesis topic: Understanding how seascape configuration influences secondary productivity in coastal ecosystems
