Previous Work Experience
Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, A*STAR (2016 – 2016)
Specialist I (with Joel Yang)
I worked on novel structures for 2D and 3D colour printing near and at the diffraction limit.
Institute of High Performance Computing, A*STAR (2015 – 2016)
Research Engineer (with Jason Png)
I worked in the plasmonics and photonics group, understanding and designing metasurfaces and nonlinear photonic waveguides. I also co-supervised three high school student interns.
Republic of Singapore Air Force (2010-2012)
I was drafted into the military for two years. For the most part, I served in ground logistics at the Peace Prairie Detachment in Texas, a joint chinook detachment run by the Republic of Singapore Air Force and the Texas Army National Guard.
