Personal profile

Biography

I am an associate professor in the Science Unit at Lingnan University. I am interested in understanding the patterns and processes that shape biodiversity. My research touches on topics in evolutionary biology, systematics, and conservation genetics. Originally trained in herpetology (study of amphibians and reptiles), I am also interested in mycology (study of fungi), thanks to my time at Seoul National University working with Dr. Young Woon Lim. My current research focuses on the phylogeography and population genetics of amphibians, reptiles, and fungi in Asia. I also have a keen interest in science education, especially in teaching evolutionary biology and natural history. Along with my B.A. from UC Berkeley, I received a minor in Education. I have been fortunate to have taught and mentored a variety of age groups (elementary, middle, & high school, university) and in different countries (USA, Korea, mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong).
