I have more than 10 years of experience working in the conservation field. I am specifically interested in bat-plant interactions and bat-human interactions, and am working to improve the conservation of Old World fruit bats (Family: Pteropodidae), especially flying foxes (Pteropus spp.), in Peninsular Malaysia.
My other conservation/research interests and experience include ecosystem services, population ecology, tropical forest and protected area management, poaching and wildlife trade, local communities, and indigenous rights.
I aim to develop applied conservation studies and deliver conservation impact on the ground yielding tangible results in real-world situations, to influence policy and effect behavioural changes by using sound scientific research and systematic data collection in the field, as well as working with local communities and stakeholders.
