Lin is originally from Australia. He joined HRI as a forestry technician in the fall of 2023. He’s worked in biological research jobs for universities and the government in Australia, including a biodiversity unit in the northern territory of Australia where they surveyed never before visited islands and flew helicopters into deserts with no road access. In his free time, Lin likes to travel in the pursuit of wildlife, especially amphibians and reptiles, and also when he’s traveling, he doesn’t have to do the dishes. He’s spent a lot of time in Indonesia and Brazil and traveled to far flung locations such as China and Kazakhstan. He also enjoys West African drumming.
