Research Activities Have been working in the field of marine ecology, and in particular coral reefs, since 1998. I have worked on various aspects of coral reef biology, including coral reef fish taxonomy, coral reef survey and monitoring, conservation and training. My main interest is in coral reef monitoring, management and conservation, especially on coral reef fishes. I completed my post graduate study on coral reef fishes of Pulau Payar Marine Park, Malaysia and had also done numerous surveys on coral reef ecosystem in the East Coast and West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia and other areas such as Natuna Islands (Indonesia) and Layang-layang Island (Spratlys). I'm also actively involved in national coral reef research, monitoring and conservation scene, working with partners mainly government agencies like Marine Park Sections of Ministry of Natural Resources, Fisheries Research Institute (Fisheries Department), NGO such as Malayan Nature Society, WWF Malaysia, Coral Cay Conservation and other research institutions (Universiti Sains Malaysia, Universiti Malaya and Universiti Pertanian Malaysia). I am also a member of Malaysian Society of Marine Sciences and instructor trainer for Reef Check Malaysia. Currently working as lecturer and research fellow at Institute of Oceanography, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu.
