Dr Tin Hang (Henry) Hung
Subject: Biology, Plant Sciences and Zoology
Academic position: Lecturer I in Biology
I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in Forest Science at the Department of Biology and a Retained Lecturer in Biology at Magdalen College, University of Oxford. My research mainly concerns the adaptation and genomics of trees in both tropical and temperate forests for their conservation and sustainable management. I currently co-chair the Ecological Genetics Group and serves in the Events Committee of the British Ecological Society (BES). I become a National Geographic Explorer in 2022 for my research on critically endangered rosewood trees.
I graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, majoring in Biology, triple-minoring in Environmental Science, German, and Music. I then read my doctorate at the University of Oxford.
