I am a Bachelor of Environmental Studies undergraduate particularly interested in marine biology, especially coral reef diversity, ecology and conservation.

Honours Project

My project aims to study the community composition and functional diversity of hard corals, a diverse group of animals which provide various important ecosystem functions, in Singapore. This will first be done through surveying sites for coral cover and diversity. Next, functional diversity will be quantified using published trait data and can be further compared with phylogenetic diversity to provide a broader scope for holistic conservation planning.
