Congratulations, Professor Brian Szuster!
Dr. Szuster has worked extensively in both Southeast Asia and Hawaiʻi focusing on resource management and planning issues associated with shrimp aquaculture, agricultural land use, and coastal tourism development. His research interests focus on two broad themes: sustainable seafood production in Thailand and coastal tourism in Hawaiʻi. In both cases, development has occurred without adequate planning, and his research contributes to both understanding social and environmental impacts of development and creating more sustainable communities. He has over 30 refereed publications and recently co-chaired the 8th International Congress on Coastal and Marine Tourism in Waikaloa, Hawaiʻi. Dr. Szuster is also the Undergraduate Chair in the Geography Department and serves on the executive committee of the UH Center for Southeast Asian Studies.
