I graduated from the National University of Singapore, had the privilege to serve as president of the students’ union, and also co-founded a start-up. My subsequent role at the Ministry of Trade and Industry has given me exposure to strategic planning and execution efforts to translate research and technology into solutions that address economic, social and environmental needs, as well as to build up innovation capabilities to drive growth in various industries and corporate segments. I also adjunct lecture at the School of Science and Technology in a local university.I am humbled and excited to join the Gates Cambridge community. Through this MPhil program, I hope to leverage technology policies to enhance economic growth, raise social mobility and promote greater inclusiveness. In my free time, I enjoy computer games, street soccer and tinkering with gadgets.
