My work is based at Opwall’s Caribbean marine sites in Honduras, where I study the manrgove forests on the island of Utila and the mainland bay of Tela. I am particularly interested in the carbon stored in these mangroves, and how this might relate to blue carbon valuations and compare to similar carbon-based conservation approaches used in terrestrial forests, such as REDD+. I also study how carbon is processed within Caribbean mangrove ecosystems, for example vis wood boring organisms.
