Who am I

I'm a biologist, diver, and nature lover with broad experiences in ecological investigations on sharks.


Most of my research is focused on juvenile sharks that grow up in shallow tropical nearshore areas. 


I believe that it's equally important to deliver science to fellow scientists, as it is to a public audience.
