About Marcus Yee
Marcus Yee was born and raised in Singapore, currently based in Hong Kong where he is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Earth Systems Science and History at the University of Hong Kong. He will be researching on climate-smart soils under Professor Claudia Wagner-Riddle under the MITACS Globalink Research internship. His interest in soils and regenerative agriculture was sparked from his participation in the Soil Regeneration Project, where he assisted in making longitudinal field observations of community gardens in Singapore. Through the internship programme, he hopes to learn more about biogeochemical cycles and soil-plant-atmosphere interactions, sharpen his skills in data processing and analysis, in order to apply these knowledge and skills to better understand questions of food security and sustainability back home. Marcus enjoys visiting and writing about art exhibitions.
