Research interests

Lulu grew up in Hong Kong and obtained a Master of Science in Nutrition for Global Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Her master’s dissertation explored the impacts of ocean warming on fisheries and food security in the Coral Triangle and Pacific. After completing her master’s, Lulu worked for WorldFish developing and implementing a pilot project in Zambia, measuring the contribution of pond polyculture to food and nutrition security and gender equity. More recently, Lulu has worked on a project examining the impacts of COVID-19 on fish supply chains across Africa and Asia. She commenced her PhD at CDU in 2021 to investigate the pathways through which mangrove ecosystems and the food they provide contribute to gendered food and nutrition security in Indonesia. Lulu was awarded a Crawford Fund Student Grant in 2022 to undertake a visit to Indonesia to conduct training and co-design her PhD research methods with research partners from West Kalimantan, Indonesia. In 2023, Lulu was awarded a grant from the Sustainable Fisheries and Community Trust (SFACT) based out of the UK, to support her research. In the same year, she was awarded a prestigious grant from the National Geographic Society and was named a National Geographic Explorer to support her research on the role of mangroves as a food system in Indonesia.
