Mr Chan Hei Yeung (Aland)

PhD student (first year)

Aland is studying the resilience of subtropical forests against natural disturbances, especially typhoons and landslides. In particular, he will be using high-resolution aerial images, LiDAR, and satellite multispectral to study the forests in Hong Kong, which contain over 100,000 recorded landslides and are hit by multiple typhoons yearly. Through the project, he hopes to better understand the complex relationships between environmental factors and the rates of recovery of vegetation, as well as the role of disturbance events on global carbon cycling.
