I am a Lecturer at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, working between the Institute of Marine Science and the School of Biological Sciences, where I divide my time between teaching and research. My focus is on investigating how organisms and ecosystems are affected by the ocean’s dynamic environment. I am particularly interested on physical/biological interactions at spatio-temporal scales ranging from few to hundreds of kilometers and a few hours to months. I am excited to learn how our understanding of these interactions can help us design conservation and management policies that fit the dynamic nature of coastal and open ocean regions.
