What is your current role?
I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. I am interested in developing therapeutics for protein-based neurodegenerative disorders.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
I chose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program since I believe such platforms provide better visibility to early-career researchers and provide them a way to integrate with peer-researchers and keeping up-to-date with latest research in their field.
What are you excited about in science communication?
Science communication provides avenues to relate new findings and inventions to interested laypersons, who may otherwise not have an access to the latest updates in the field. Communicating our research in an easy and comprehensive way can bring in more perspectives from non-specialists in specific fields, which can sometimes prove to be beneficial approaches to solve any problem.
Ask me about…
In addition to my research in protein-based biomaterials, I am also passionate about improving visibility of women in STEM, and particularly outreach to the younger generation through science communication.
