About Me

I am currently taking a break from the job market to dedicate more time to my family and to work on a language education startup. In June 2024, I received my certification as a Google Certified Data Engineer. Previously, I worked as a research data engineer at the University College London (UCL). Before transitioning to data engineering, I was as a research fellow at the Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities. I earned my Ph.D. from the School of Information Systems at Singapore Management University. During my free time I love to read books and learn languages. View my CV .
