Honours Student

I am a final-year student specializing in Environmental Biology under the Bachelor of Environmental Studies programme. I hope to contribute to marine research, especially that relating to coral reef resilience while sharing with others on the beauty of coral reefs.

Honours project

My project aims to investigate how sediment and coral communities relate to one another, using paleoecological coral assemblage records and sediment structure from reef cores obtained from intertidal zones of various reefs in Singapore’s Southern Islands.

Considering how sedimentation is known to be one of the most important chronic stressors for corals in Singapore, it is hoped that the data obtained from this project can provide a historical baseline for comparison with present-day reefs and inform on future development around coral reefs and guide reef conservation efforts.
