Here are some of the research projects I have been working on for the past few years.
Examine the extreme anti-predator behavior exhibited by adult frogs during egg attendance, often against organisms that are a source of danger to both adults and their embryos.
Systematic observation and quantification of the unusual egg attendance behavior of Chiromantis hansenae in natural settings, as well as experimental manipulations to confirm its adaptive significance.
During my time at NUS, I have helped out on a number of other research projects and mentored honors and undergraduate students research in the our lab. Some examples of projects are:
Breeding habitat enrichement of amphibians
Chytrid fungus survey in the region
Impacts of climate change and acid rain on larval amphibians
Embryonic development of amphibians
Examine embryonic development and hatching time in response of various hatching cues, such as predation, submergence, and desiccation. Consider ways in which cues are transmitted, received, and affecting the hatching behavior of embryos.
