Department of Oncology



I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the National University of Singapore and his Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and Computational Science and Engineering at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland. During my career as a research engineer I have worked on modelling various phenomena ranging from fluid structure interactions to metabolic networks within cells.

I have joined the Department of Oncology to work on the CRUK UK funded International Alliance for Cancer Early Detection (ACED) programme, focusing on modelling the kinetics of tumour growth.
