Lim Hyee Shynn

Academic Qualifications

B. Sc. (Hons) Marine Biology and Oceanography, University of Plymouth

Research areas

Carbon monitoring; vegetation demography modelling; spatial ecology

Research interests

Shynn's current research focuses on using the Ecosystem Demography (ED) model to map present and future carbon stocks over Southeast Asia. The model outputs will be evaluated against existing remote sensing carbon monitoring data products (GEDI, IceSat-2) and estimations from allometric models. Other research interests include habitat fragmentation, forest structural complexity and ocean dynamics.


Shynn's goal as a scientist is to contribute to the understanding of how to protect our ecosystems at peril through modelling and remote sensing methods and improving in-situ data resolution using novel technologies.
