I have lived in Asia, the US, and Europe, working with the remarkably diverse coastal ecosystems of different regions. Coastal ecosystems are vital nature-based solutions for climate adaptation and mitigation, via services such as storm protection, erosion control, and carbon sequestration. However, these ecosystems and their functioning are exposed to increasing human and natural disturbances, such that the long-term dynamics of the ecosystems are often considered one of the most important challenges in developing and managing nature-based solutions. In other words, nature-based solutions must be designed for longevity for optimised performance and maximised benefits. My research tackles this challenge by using remote sensing and machine learning to better understand how coastal ecosystems respond to disturbances.
