Lee Hyee Shynn

Academic Qualifications

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

Research areas

Carbon monitoring; terrestrial biosphere 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 Singapore. The model outputs will be evaluated against existing remote sensing carbon monitoring data products (GEDI, IceSat-2) and estimations from allometric models. Other research topics of interest include habitat fragmentation, forest structural complexity, self-organising systems and fluid dynamics.


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