Research Profile

My research interests are concerned with the nutrient fluxes, productivity and restoration ecology of the mangrove ecosystem. I also aim at progressing the fundamental understanding of the coastal Dipterocarp forest and to apply this knowledge to conservation of biodiversity. I am particularly intrigued by the use of mathematical models and GIS to integrate the understanding of the plant-environment interactions.

Current Research

  • Sea level Rise & its influence on mangrove propagule & seedling development.
  • Simulation Models for propagule dispersal to maximize impact of Mangrove restoration.
  • Satellite based monitoring of the changes & distribution of mangrove using Oceansat-2 data in Malaysia.
  • Carbon Sequestration of Bio-Facade for Building Walls of Malaysia.

Collaborators

  • Space Applications Centre, Ambawadi VIsta P.O., Ahmedabad, India.
  • Coastal & Offshore Engineering Institute, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.
  • School of Physic, USM.
  • School of Housing, Building & Planning, USM.
