About Me

November 23, 2013

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 practical conservation experience also includes 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.
