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.
