I advise several governments on marine and coastal management and science, including the UK Government on its tropical Overseas Territories.
I have organised and led the scientific input to the 2010 creation of the world's largest fully protected marine researce, in the Chagos archipelago, Indian Ocean, where a lot of my research has been focussed.
The other main geographical area of research is the Arabian region.
