I obtained my Bachelor of Science (Genetics and Molecular Biology) from the University of Malaya, Malaysia in 2001. My honours project was on plant cytogenetics. I then won a scholarship (Post-Graduate Scheme) and furthered my research on the polymorphism of an immune gene called MICA (Major Histocompatibility Complex Class I Chain-Related Gene A) and was awarded Master of Medical Science by the same university. In 2002, I was awarded a Gates Cambridge Scholarship (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) and an Overseas Research Studentship to investigate genome-wide transcriptional regulation of chloroplast signalling pathways using microarray technology for my PhD at the University of Cambridge, UK. I then worked briefly for a project from a pharmaceutical company before joining Division of Cardiovascular Medicine for my post-doctoral research. I am interested in genome-wide transcriptional regulation of cardiomyopathy. I have authored more than ten international peer reviewed articles. I am also a reviewer for a number of international journals.
