I love science, and try to explore the world - one molecule at a time.
For my PhD, I'm 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, Canada. I also speak Cantonese. I originally planned to become an astronaut as a child; an impactful UBC Biochemistry professor convinced me otherwise.
In my free time, I love to play basketball, cook, eat, and travel. I also love Formula One, and most things space-related. I'm still waiting for the second season of Firefly. My favourite proteins are pikachurin and RNA Polymerase.
