Research title: Development of an interdisciplinary decision support tool to inform mangrove restoration/conservation in large Asian deltas

Research Summary

Mangroves are highly diverse but vulnerable ecosystems that provide several ecosystem services. Despite their importance, they have been degraded or converted to other forms of land use, while many restoration and conservation projects lack an understanding of the socio-ecological complexities. My research aims to develop an interdisciplinary decision support tool that accounts for these complexities to successfully inform mangrove restoration and conservation strategies in the Mekong, Red River and Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna deltas.

Additional Information

My qualifications include a Bachelor of Science in Geography from Giessen University and a Master of Science in Environmental Geography and Management from Kiel University and Bangor University. Before joining the Living Deltas Hub project as a PhD student, I worked in a junior research group at Kiel University, for GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and for Germany’s National Meteorological Service in Hamburg. With a particularly strong passion for the coastal environment, my research interests are driven by climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction with a focus on interdisciplinary, applied, and collaborative research tailored to achieve societal impact. Previously, I worked on adaptation finance, vulnerability to sea-level rise, ocean observation systems and nearshore wave modelling.
