How humans function have always intrigued me from a very young age. To answer my questions, I spent my undergraduate years immersed in the minuscule world of cells and molecules learning about the basic building blocks of life. Inevitably, I started to wonder about the events happening on a larger scale. Thus, I went on to pursue a PhD in the cognitive neurosciences. Now, I spend a significant chunk of my time as a Research Fellow at Duke-NUS Medical School’s Neuroscience and Behavioural Research Programme. I hope to gain a deeper appreciation of brain processes and functions that define who we are, and how we interact with the world we live in.
