I’m a PhD student doing my research in genetically engineering green microalgae – the future of food, biofuels and biopharmaceuticals.
I left my nest in Malaysia and came to the UK to pursue my studies in a different culture and education system! I meditate daily, love street dancing and crochet in my free time. I also have an ambitious goal to conquer all the munros in Scotland at the end of my PhD ⛰️. My pronouns are she/her.
