PROJECTS: MicroRNA sensors; MicroRNA expression and regulation, RNA technologies and RNA therapeutics

EMAIL

I completed my PhD at Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory in 2019, where I studied mechanisms of miRNA processing and expression during development, and their biological roles in gene regulation. I am currently working on projects to engineer a novel context-specific ribozyme-based technology platform for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Besides translational RNA technologies, I am also interested in the non-coding genome in development and disease. In my free time, I enjoy solo travel and spending time outdoors in nature.

PROJECTS: RNA technologies for in vivo gene regulation 

EMAIL

I graduated from University of Cambridge in June 2020 with a BA (Hons) in Natural Sciences, specialising in Biochemistry. Understanding disease mechanisms and developing new therapeutics has always been my interest. I’m excited to work on developing ribozymes for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Outside of research, I enjoy playing badminton and solving puzzles.

I graduated from National University of Singapore in December 2020 with a Bachelor of Science (Chemistry major, Mathematics minor). My FYP is on the metabolite study of celery using NMR. I developed interest for coding in the recent years and I hope to learn more about using Python for data processing with the incorporation of AI. I enjoy playing basketball and looking for good food around Singapore during my free time.

PROJECTS: Neurodegeneration, RNA therapies

EMAIL

I am a fresh graduate from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical Engineering). I enjoy working on interdisciplinary projects together with people of different expertise. The collision and integration of ideas from different minds has never failed to amaze me. As part of my resolution for the year, I have been trying to read a variety books during my free time these days and I also enjoy watching thriller and crime films.
