Asian School of the Environment, NTU Singapore
Chung-Wing received a BSc in Biology Honours and a Certificate in Environment and Sustainability from the University of Texas at Austin (USA) in 2020. Throughout her undergraduate career, she has conducted research in disciplines ranging between forest ecology, plant molecular biology, and environmental anthropology, all addressing various global challenges. She is currently a third-year PhD student under Dr. Kelly Andersen in the Asian School of the Environment, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). Her current work focuses on the effect of land-use change on a range of below-ground traits, including soil carbon and nutrients, root morphology, root nutrients, mycorrhizal colonisation, and microbial community composition. Through this work, she uses tools and techniques from soil biogeochemistry, plant physiology, and ecosystem ecology. As an interdisciplinary scientist, she is particularly passionate about the accelerating rate of land conversion and interested in how these global changes will affect both environmental shifts as well as the lives and livelihoods of human actors in the region.
