I am a PhD candidate in physical geography at the National University of Singapore. I am also a President’s Graduate Fellow with NUS, and a Young Scientist with the research initiative Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR).

My current research reconstructs the avulsion history of the Ping River in Northern Thailand, using geoarcheological field excavation methods and luminescence dating. You can find out more about my research here.

I received my Master of Environment (Environmental Science) and Bachelor of Science (Geography) from the University of Melbourne, Australia. My master’s research was on the geomorphological history of Corryong Creek in southeastern Australia. I am also a proud Wyvern (i.e. alumna) of Queen’s College.

The Science Communicator

I enjoy explaining scientific information and sharing my enthusiasm for science research using a variety of delivery mediums and to a variety of audiences. I am a firm believer that science should be as accessible as possible to the general public. I am very interested in exploring other creative avenues through which science and the experience of science can be shared.

This includes creating videos for my YouTube channel, posting pictures on my Instagram, giving presentations to non-academic audiences, and writing blog posts (including poems!). It is my goal to experiment in as many types of media as possible (such as visual and performance arts) to convey research.
