Research Activities Principal research scientist at AIMS in the Sustainable Use of Marine Biodiversity Program and leads Tropical Aquaculture research in economically important crustacea. He has previously held research positions at the Max-Planck Institute (Germany) and University of Bristol (UK), specifically in understanding physiological and endocrinological processes that occur on a circadian and seasonal basis before joining AIMS.
Skills/Expertise Aquaculture Understanding the relationship between stress and health The role of microbes in larval rearing systems The development of generic hatchery production systems The development of larval feeds for the production of high quality and health larvae.
