Areas of interest

Freshwater ecology; ichthyology; community ecology


I first worked on fish ecology in my undergraduate years, investigating the ecology and introduction of the South American cichlid Acarichthys heckelii. My experiences cultivated an interest in ecological processes at a community level, especially in the relatively understudied tropical fresh waters. This led to my participation in a freshwater biomonitoring project in 2010, and subsequently, to the formulation of my current research topic.

Current projects

I am working on elucidating trophic interactions on communities in Singapore’s reservoirs. My research involves the use of stable isotope and gut content analyses.
