Min Gon Chung is a doctoral student in Fisheries and Wildlife and the Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability. His area of interest is interdisciplinary studies between ecology, statistics, socioeconomics, and geography to integrate multiple disciplines and techniques. He is particularly intrigued by the interactions between ecosystem services, human well-being, and their linkages in Coupled Human and Natural Systems (CHANS) and Telecouplings. He is especially interested in continuing his research in assessing ecosystem services with a modern spatialanalysis method, and in bridging together socioeconomic data with ecological data by using statistical models. His work aims to provide scientific guidelines for conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
