Biography & Research Interests


Jaya's PhD research is the coastal protection services provided by coastal ecosystems in Southeastern Australia

Jaya’s PhD thesis is to develop local valuations of wetland ecosystems services on coastal protection in southeastern Australia. His proposed research means to quantify the benefits people gain from natural systems, by evaluating the impacts of wetland ecosystems to attenuate the incoming waves generated by storms or typhoon, reduce the flooding impacts, and maintain shoreline elevation. He will use several approaches that include field observation and monitoring, numerical model, and physical model.
