My research aims to illuminate the feedbacks between humans and the productivity, biodiversity and resilience of marine ecosystems to inform relevant and robust marine conservation policy. I am deeply committed to co-producing, communicating and mobilizing marine conservation science, therefore, I foster unique research partnerships with Indigenous knowledge holders, government and non-government organizations, and a wide diversity of academics. My highly collaborative research has revealed key insights into tipping points in kelp forest ecosystems, the cascading effects of keystone predators, the science of marine reserves, and the factors that confer resilience to coupled social-ecological systems.
