BIOGRAPHY

Dr Adibi M.Nor is a marine biologist and aquaculturist by training, with 20 years of experience in the fisheries sector. His work focuses on the fisheries policy particularly, the sustainability of seaweed commercialisation among Malaysian coastal communities and the impact of this activity on their livelihoods. He was an employee of the Department of Fisheries (DOF) and now is a senior lecturer and PhD programme coordinator at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS). Dr Adibi was involved with the development of the national seaweed policy - in particular, to implement, monitor and evaluate this policy. Dr Adibi has also developed an in-depth knowledge of various fisheries management themes: sustainable development strategies, governance, aquaculture management, community development, public policy analysis, case studies, developing countries, economic development, social studies, community organisation, and research methodologies. This breadth of experience has shaped his insights into the flow of using scientific evidence in the policy-making process. He has published widely on seaweed/fisheries research related to policy, biology, and value chain aspects. He was appointed as a reviewer for Journal of Applied Phycology, Journal of Socioeconomics and Development and Botanica Marina in 2021, 2020 and 2019. He is also a consultant for an international seaweed project and a scientific advisor and business development planner for the local aquaculture company. He is passionate about making aquaculture development sustainable and equitable for the local community and the environment.
