I received my PhD in Immunology in 2018 from the National University of Singapore, where I worked in the laboratories of Michael Kemeny and Nicholas Gascoigne. During my PhD work, I studied the biology of CD8 T cells and their interactions with dendritic cells. I am extremely interested in multi-disciplinary research and I aspire to expand our understanding of biology and unravel the mysteries of life through the development of novel approaches. Besides science, I also enjoy exploring, hiking, tinkering with technology, and taking pictures.
