Author: Yi Mei Tan, Senior Environmental Consultant
Yi Mei is a Senior Environmental Consultant with DHI, working on nature-based solutions such as habitat restoration and developing blue carbon projects. She is also involved in a variety of commercial projects including impact assessments, environment monitoring and feasibility studies. As part of her PhD research, she investigated the tools and techniques for seagrass restoration in Western Port, Victoria, Australia. This involved multiple large-scale field transplantations, as well as smaller scale mesocosm experiments to better understand seagrass survival and growth. Yi Mei strongly believes it is her responsibility as a scientist to produce research outcomes that are directly applicable to some of today's major environmental challenges.
