About the presenter
Ricardo F. Tapilatu is conducting research on Designing Best Approaches in Developing Ocean Health Index Independent Assessment (OHI+) in Indonesia at Center of Oceans – Conservation International, Arlington Virginia and Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science – Florida State University (FSU), Tallahasse, Florida for 6 (six) months. He thinks it is necessary because OHI+ is an assessment tool that scientifically measures key elements from all dimensions of the ocean’s health — biological, physical, economic and social — to guide decision makers toward the sustainable use of the ocean. He also had done multiple research in marine wildlife conservation wth multiple partners and funding supports from multiple agencies at Bird’s Head Seascape, Papua-Indonesia. Previously, he earned a bachelor degree at Diponegoro University, master’s degrees at Bogor Agricultural University and James Cook University (JCU) - Australia and PhD at University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) – USA.
