Dr. Ong Meng Chuan is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Science and Marine Environment, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu. He holds a doctoral degree in Marine Pollution specifically in metals pollution from the University of South Brittany, France. His research focuses on the metal content in sediment samples which can act as geo–marker for pollution studies. Apart from the sediment samples, his research also included biota samples of fishes, crustaceans, bivalves, molluscs and plants such as seaweed and seagrass. From these biota samples, the suitability of using these organisms as bioindicator can be identified which best reflect the environmental quality. Hence, risk assessment towards human health by consuming these organisms can be estimated. He is currently actively gathering all the Malaysian marine aquatic environment data to be stored in the GIS database. With this database, these data can easily refer by other researchers for their studies.
