My undergraduate research sparked my interest in studying the ecology of freshwater habitats and its inhabitants. The complexity and diversity of freshwater ecosystems intrigued me and this coupled with the disparity in limnological research between temperate and tropical regions led me to take up my current area of research.
My current project is focused on the community structure of fishes in selected reservoirs in Singapore. The project involves the application of stable isotope and gut content analysis to construct trophic structure models of fishes in the reservoirs. These models will be tested in order to ascertain their relevance to possible biomanipulation protocols for controlling blooms of unwanted organisms.
