Panel Discussion : How To Land A Job As An Environmental Graduate?

Celine Ng

Celine is a Conservation Biology fresh graduate, and is currently doing her Masters research that focuses on infectious disease in non-human primates in Universiti Sains Malaysia. As a young researcher, she strongly believes that effective science communication needs to be incorporated with advocacy as an approach to support decision making that is in favour of environmental conservation. Hence, she enjoys connecting with more like-minded people and empowering more youths in contributing to sustainability actions. She represented EcoKnights’ Project VOCAL (Voice of Climate Action Leader) as one of the youth panels in the UNDP Youth Talks: Climate Change to advocate climate action among the youth community and also attended the UNDP Asia-Pacific Regional Dialogue on Youth Empowerment in Climate Actions as a youth environmental organization delegate from Malaysia. Her passion for science had led her to a unique opportunity to be part of the International Conferences on Tropical Sciences: Contributions to Sustainability (TropSc 2021) under the Mahathir Science Award Foundation. Additionally, she also mentored youths formally and informally on ways to address environmental issues in their community.
