I love science, and try to explore the world - one molecule at a time.
During my PhD, I'm interested in studying the mechanisms of gene expression in budding yeast through molecular and cellular biology, and bioinformatics.
I completed a BSc Biochemistry degree at UCL.
I then completed my BSc final year project on the signalling functions of tight junction-associated Marvel proteins at epithelial tight junctions, with Prof. Karl Matter at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology.
I live in London, but grew up in Vancouver and speak fluent Cantonese. Originally planning to become an astronaut as a child, an impactful UBC Biochemistry professor convinced me otherwise.
In my free time, I love to fence (épée), cycle, and enjoy great coffee. I also love cars and Formula One, and reckon I'd make a pretty good racing driver. I'm still waiting for the second season of Firefly. My favourite proteins are pikachurin and RNA Polymerase.
