Hsien-Yung Lin

Postdoctoral Researcher

Research interests: (1) applying quantitative methods on ecological conservation and natural resources management and (2) incorporating scientific findings and modelling results into decision-making processes. I am especially interested in connectivities among systems, such as migratory species, transboundary species and threats, and the value of collaboration and coordination in conservation and restoration plans.
