I am generally interested by marine invertebrates, developmental biology, ecology and ecophysiology in a changing world.
My post-doc project in Dr. Chan’s lab will focus on the effects of metals and ocean acidification on the larvae of invertebrates in order to gain insights regarding phenotypic plasticity, adaptation potential and parental acclimatization.
I graduated from the Institute of Oceanography, National Taiwan University with a master's degree. I am generally interested in studying plankton physiological response and performance in changing ocean environment. In particular, I like applying visualisation and automatic classification technique on assisting the analysis of zooplankton abundance, size measurement and identification.
I am a recent Environmental Science graduate from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Growing up in Hong Kong, I have always been aware of the environmental and ecological deterioration in urban areas. Working in Dr.Chan's lab will give me insight into our relationship with nature, and what we can do to protect it.
