Ya-Ling ChangIn her honours project, Ya-Ling reviewed the literature on quantified values of forest focusing on village income studies in Borneo, Indonesia. This work aimed to set foundation for further discussion of hydrology values in Borneo. Her research project was supervised by Dr. Kerrie Wilson and Dr. Erik Meijaard.

Ya-Ling is interested in conservation management and ecology study. She used to work in benthic ecology lab as research assistant. Her job in the lab formed part of the river conservation project in Taiwan which studied coastal ecosystems involving evaluation of ecosystem services, food web (energy flow) and sediment analysis. Ya-Ling plans to focus on studies of ecosystem services using GIS method to solve environmental problem in conservation management.
