to examine the role of oxygen in shaping phytoplankton communities along the oxycline, and to identify related metabolic pathways
I am an ecologist by training and my Ph.D. & post-doc research focused on mechanisms. I adopted the use of trait-based approach, competition theories, and mathematical modelling to describe the diversity of organisms in marine ecosystems.
I transitioned from the academia to the startup world & entrepreneurship. I'm excited to bring forward my skills as a scientific researcher to propel the sustainable agriculture movement, and to develop nature-inspired solutions to reshape the way we treat wastes. I am particularly interested in the concept of symbiosis in cities, especially on nutrient circularity to increase the recovery of nutrients from various organic residual streams.
I spent two years in a vertical farm in Hong Kong, Common Farms. I focused on the utilisation of data and technology to communicate with the plants we grow, in order to provide the best environment for them to thrive. I spearheaded the development of data-driven & technology-enabled solutions to enhance efficiency in the operation flow of the farm. I also worked on the data architecture of the company and set strategies to collect and turn data into actionable insights.
