About Me
I am a Singaporean who recently completed my Ph.D. studies at Tohoku University in Japan. My interests are experiencing and learning the cultures and history of different countries. I especially enjoy seeing the beautiful architectures and exploring the nature by going for long hikes. My hobbies include reading mystery books, especially on Sherlock Holmes and those written by Agatha Christie. My research goals are directed towards identifying reliable biomarkers for the diagnosis of various types of dementia, as well as cancers, by exploring the different types of biomarkers and improving the methods of analysis.
Research Interest
  • Diseases of Interest: Neurodegeneration, Cancer
  • Imaging related interest: Exploring the different types of biomarkers to identify reliable biomarkers for diagnosis, Improving the methods of analysis and accuracy of diagnosis
