My work focuses on management of coastal areas, including mechanisms to increase institutional cooperation, capacity building, development of management plans, and reduction of conflicts between various resource users. Marine and coastal protected areas are an additional area of my work. I dedicate much of my effort to work in the Caribbean Basin and Latin America.
