PhD (South Carolina)
Senior Research Fellow
I am a molecular geneticist with expertise in next generation sequencing for inherited rare disorders and cancers. In the Foo Lab, I work on interpreting and curating next generation sequencing data spanning across different types of rare inherited cardiac conditions, as well as paediatric syndromes. I’m driven by my personal motto of lifelong learning and practising science in the process. When not at work, I like to spend time with my family and love to travel, paint, meet new people from different cultural backgrounds among other things.
