Dr. Neo Mei Lin

Dr. Neo Mei Lin recently completed her PhD with the supervision of both Dr. Peter Todd and Dr. Serena Teo in the National University of Singapore. Her thesis examined the key issues of the past, present and future statuses of giant clams in Singapore, consisting of studies, such as literature reviews, population surveys and genetics, dispersal modelling, and larval experimental work.

After her PhD, Dr. Neo began her position as a research fellow on the “restocking of giant clams” project in NUS, with my PhD supervisors. By September 2014, she will transfer to the Tropical Marine Science Institute as a research fellow. Over there, she will not only manage the projects on giant clams, but also takes on the role of acquiring grants and projects for the institution.

Apart from her mainstream research, Dr. Neo is also interested in matters concerning marine biodiversity and conservation locally and regionally. She is also an active member in the local marine conservation groups: TeamSeagrass, Blue Water Volunteers, and WildSingapore; and she maintains an active blog: Psychedelic Nature to share her fieldtrip experiences. Right after her PhD, Dr. Neo signed up as a volunteer with Physalus-Large Marine Vertebrates Project Philippines as a research assistant to study the effects of provisioning on the whale sharks population.
