My marine research career started in the early 1990s at the Ministry of Fisheries. In 2001, I joined the Mauritius Oceanography Institute where I am currently the Director. My pre and post doctoral experience stem from participation in several local, regional and international projects in coral taxonomy, coral reef ecology, phylogenetics, phylogeography and population genetics. I have led national projects on: coral farming for reef rehabilitation and conservation of the local fauna; and on the inventory and molecular characterization of marine organisms in the waters of Mauritius.
