I am currently working on my undergraduate honours project, which seeks to investigate the underlying mechanisms behind anuran biodiversity loss in conjunction with habitat loss.

 

Whilst it's intuitively clear that habitat loss is a major driver of biodiversity loss, many of the the mechanisms behind this are still poorly understood. In particular, the (1) body condition of the Asian Toad (Duttaphrynus melanostictus) and (2) reproductive success of the Dark-sided Chorus Frog (Microhyla heymonsi) will be quantified across a habitat disturbance gradient.     

 

The natural world never fails to excite me and I love getting out in the field and spotting all the cool stuff there is to be found in Singapore's remaining patches of nature. It's great to see my friends surprised to find that such a rich biodiversity still exists in Singapore in spite of the massive destruction of our natural habitats!

 

Besides getting muddy and chasing frogs through the forest, I love a good read and chilling out with friends just like other (normal) people do. :)
