About Me

I am currently transitioning.

Previously, I was a researcher at IBM research Singapore, working in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Before that, I did a postdoc at the National University of Singapore (NUS), working with Prof. Mun Choon Chan and Prof. Bryan Low.

I graduated from the Australian National University (Canberra) in December 2016. My PhD supervisor was Prof. Wray Buntine in the Monash University, Melbourne.
