What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research
I am a Senior Lecturer at Universiti Sains Malaysia (Penang, Malaysia). My team employs genome editing technology and pharmacological approaches to understand how cancer cell survival is controlled.
What are you excited about in science communication?
I love talking about science with my students at the university. I like to see their look in their eyes when I share with them the latest breakthroughs in science.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellow program?
I like to meet people and hear their views on preprints. I would like to increase awareness about preprints among early-career scientists and postgraduates and the ASAPbio would be ideal platform to bounce ideas on how to do this effectively.
Ask me about…
Lego. I love building all the different types of Lego models with my 6-year-old. We recently built a Rapunzel castle, and we will be building a Harry Potter Lego model soon.
