Research:

I am working on coastal hazard study focusing on the physical characteristic of the sediment. Driven by my interest in biology, I am trying to go deeper to understand what are the communities in the sediment and if the changes in the communities could be a signature of historical coastal hazard event. I will apply multi-approaches including standard geological analysis on sediment physical profile and metagenomic approach to investigate the geomicrobial effects of flooding from storms and tsunamis.
