Short Bio

I received my PhD and MSc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2012, and my M.Eng degree (first class honors) from Imperial College, London. From 2012 to 2015, I was with the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) as a research scientist, working in the areas of Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Information Theory and Wireless Communications. I received the Institute of Engineers Singapore (IES) Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award as a team member in the project team ‘‘The Future of Audit: Predictive Analytics on Irregularities and Risks in Bank Branches’’, a joint project between DBS and I2R. Since June 2015, I have been working in IBM Research Singapore, where I am currently the principal investigator for a joint project on Maritime sense-making and predictive analytics between IBM and Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). I was a recipient of the Stanford Graduate Fellowship and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research Singapore National Science Scholarship for my graduate studies at Stanford University. I received the Singapore Public Service Commission Scholarship for my undergraduate studies at Imperial College, London.
