Principal Ecologist and Biomimic
Anuj is passionate about creating ecologically responsible and nature-inspired designs for the built environment that are good for people, biodiversity and ecosystem services.
Anuj is a National Geographic Explorer, a recipient of the Joan Mosenthal DeWind award for Lepidoptera Conservation by Xerces Society, USA and the Cities of Love Environmental Sustainability Award, Singapore.
As the first trained Biomimicry Professional in Southeast Asia, he also founded the Biomimicry Singapore Network which is part of Biomimicry Institute’s Global Networks. Anuj combines his deep ecological knowledge with biomimicry to create engaging outdoor experiences in tropical ecosystems.
Dr. Anuj Jain
Wei Kit is an Ecologist with experience in applied environmental research and engineering studies, as well as consultancy projects in both coastal and terrestrial environments. His multi-disciplinary experience encompasses ecology, geomorphology, coastal processes, hydrology, and geohydrology. He has conducted flora and fauna survey, ecological monitoring, topographic and geophysical survey in natural and urban ecosystems. His broad experience enables him to seek innovative solutions in a cost- and time-efficient manner.
Wei Kit believes in the importance of cross-disciplinary and collaborative works in solving complex environmental problems. He enjoys being in the nature and the process of understanding how nature works. He is also active in local environmental volunteering during his free time.

Below-Ground Ecologist (Collaborator)
Shailendra is a below-ground ecologist who brings a deep understanding of the key ecological processes in forest, agricultural and urban ecosystems and how such processes are linked to climate change. Since 2009, he has been using ecological frameworks to decipher the complexity of below-ground ecosystems by combining large high-throughput datasets using multivariate statistical methods. Overall, his findings can be adopted by several stakeholders to meet their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as to enhance their valuation by climate-related financial risk disclosures.

Associate Marine Ecologist
Rick is a marine ecologist, currently based in Australia. Over the past 8 years, Rick’s research encompasses understanding ecological traits of tropical and temperate marine ecosystems across 3 continents. In Southeast Asia, he has worked on mangrove species distributions across elevational gradients in Singapore and the impacts of sedimentation in Thailand, as well as on the impacts of algal growth and sedimentation on coral reefs in Singapore. In Australia, he has worked on the spatial configuration of marine habitats, specifically in remnant oyster reefs in New South Wales. Finally, in Europe, he worked on the spatial sedimentation effects in Dutch Eastern Scheldt oyster reefs.
Rick’s background in marine biology and global work experience makes him well suited to advise on the restoration and rehabilitation methods of degraded and/or urbanising marine and coastal environments.

Associate - Architectural Designer
Celine is a graduate of Architecture with a Masters in Integrated Sustainable Design from the National University of Singapore. As someone who holds the philosophy of Deep Ecology very firmly, she sees the need to assimilate the built environment with nature. She aspires to integrate ecological processes with building design in meaningful ways where architecture and nature can both benefit. As a passionate advocate for the environment, Celine has dedicated time over the course of 5 years to regional building projects that seek sustainable solutions in the face of inequality and climate change. She also has experience with ecological engineering in local coastal habitats with sea wall designs for coastal resilience.
When not at her work desk, Celine can be found either trekking high up in the mountains or scuba-diving deep in the oceans, looking for inspiration.
