DR KARENNE TUN
Deputy Director of the Coastal and Marine Environment National Biodiversity Centre, National Parks Board
Dr Karenne Tun joined NParks in 2013, after an 18-year circuit within academia, non-profit organisation and private environmental consultancy, during which time she obtained her PhD from the National University of Singapore (NUS) where she focussed on developing tools for coral reef monitoring and management. Dr Tun’s interest in the marine environment was ignited as an undergraduate, where, over the years, her fascination turned to concern at their rapid decline, particularly in the region. She subsequently worked at NUS, focused on studying the impacts of anthropogenic activities on coral reefs, before moving on to coordinating coral reef monitoring efforts in the South East Asian region.
