I'm a first-year MScRes student looking at the dental morphology of the five extant Panthera (big cat) species and studying the possibility of a correlation between tooth morphology and hunting ecology.
My data collection was done on museum specimens, where I focussed on the canine and carnassial teeth, as these are predominantly used in subduing prey and in feeding.
I am interested in carnivore ecology, particularly their hunting and feeding patterns. For my undergraduate thesis, I worked on a meta-analysis on the prey preferences of the mountain lion (Puma concolor).
Originally from Singapore, I came to Bangor in 2015 to pursue an undergraduate degree in zoology. Upon graduating in 2018, I decided to stay on and do a postgraduate Masters by Research (MScRes).
Academia aside, I spend my free time bettering my skills in wildlife photography and science communication through blogging and Twitter. I am also rather partial to reading, usually focussing on the popular science and fantasy genres.
