Hong Kong, how I miss you!

During my Masters and PhD, I undertook several projects to characterize sewage-derived marine pollution and its associated impacts in the coastal ocean as well as sediments in Hong Kong's South China Sea. To do this, my toolkit involved stable isotope analysis, metagenomics, amplicon sequencing, and nutrient chemistry.

In 2015, I got involved in the Marine Global Earth Observatories Program (MarineGEO) which was a collaborative effort between University of Hong Kong and the Smithsonian Institution. As part of this program, I led a team to map coastal ocean biodiversity in several sites in the south china sea. We used several mini-ocean hotels aka autonomous reef monitoring structures (ARMS) as well as sediment samples to characterize the microbial diversity. In addition to this, I used several assays to quantify ecosystem function.
