After years of working on various projects that involved environmental management and nature conservation with all levels of stakeholders - from international agencies to national policy makers, down to local communities - I decided to join the academia in 2005 with hope to contribute towards closing the gap that I found to exist between what is called “real” sciences and social sciences in these important fields.
Since then, my work has concentrated on the application of social science in biodiversity-related research to support sensitive ecosystem management and sustainable development. I have experience and on-going research interests in Ecosystems Management and Sustainable Livelihoods in coastal areas as well as in Marine Protected Areas, focusing on human ecology, biodiversity conservation, and societal benefits. My role in the School of Marine and Environmental Sciences of Universiti Malaysia Terengganu is to promote and assist in the integration of social sciences into oceanographic and environmental researches, with hope to one day see a strong community of marine social scientists established in Malaysia.
