A professorial researcher, focusing on the linkages between coral reef ecosystems and people. My recent work has focussed on the responses of coral reefs to climate change, market drivers of ecological change, missing institutions, identifying safe planetary boundaries for human development, avoiding social traps, and transformative governance of the sea in Australia, Chile, China, the Galapagos Islands, Gulf of Maine and the Coral Triangle.
