Research interests

My research interest lies in the Marine Science and fisheries, biology and ecology of marine creature.

During my undergrad studies I worked in The Effects of Bio-fouling Organisms and Sea Water on Mechanical Properties of the Natural Fibers Cotton, Palm and Coconut Coil, Sultanate of Oman project. The results of this project were to minimise ghost fishing.

While through my master’s degree I involved in Spiny Seahorse (Hippocampus guttulatus) and Short Snouted Seahorse (Hippocampus hippocampus) Species Distributions along the British Isles and Ireland: Conservation Case Study with GIS Mapping project. The recommendation of this project was important for implementing Environmentally Friendly Moorings (EFMs) around ports with seagrass habitats.

Research project
