Grants & Funding (current and Past projects):

Awards & Achievements:

Worked on the assessment of Above Ground Biomass (AGB) using Terrestrial LiDAR and 3D Quantitative
Structure Modelling (QSM) in a tropical rain forest, a case study of Ayer Hitam Forest Reserve, Malaysia. The
aim of the research was to explore the feasibility of using Terrestrial LiDAR and QSM to assess AGB with the
objective of providing an accurate method for REDD+ Measuring Reporting and Verification (MRV) systems.

Consultancy and advisory work (current and past):
