My name is Peng Tian and I am from Ningbo University, China. I will study at the Prof. Roman’s “E-SEAL” lab, department of Biological Sciences in NUS during 2023-2024 under the sponsorship of China Scholarship Council (CSC). My research direction is mainly on the management of coastal zone resources and environment, focusing on the ecological environment effects of land use, urban heat island effect, ecosystem services and remote sensing technology applications.

The coastal zone is a hotspot of human activities, and the relationship between human activities and the ecological environment of the coastal zone is worthy of further exploration. We combine remote sensing technology, surface measured data, and socioeconomic data to reveal the characteristics of coastal zone resource and environmental changes, and provide reference for high-quality development of coastal cities and ecological environmental protection.
