Personal profile

I am an applied researcher in fish ecology with over 20 years’ experience working on different aspects of fish ecology and infrastructure development impacts in the Mekong region. My research is focused on informing the management and conservation of large river systems, and I have specialist expertise in examining fish migrations using otolith chemistry.  Before joining the Gulbali Institute, I worked as a fisheries researcher at the Fisheries Ecology and Aquatic Resources Division within the Research Institute for Aquaculture No2 in Vietnam.

Fish and water are critical components in our society. Both fish and water have been under threatened by many factors. Fish catches, important food sources, have been declined due to river development. Fish cannot sustain their populations without water and connections of critical habitats. My research uses innovation tools to sustain and conserve the fisheries, while possible impacts on fish populations are minimised.
