Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

As a first-generation Asian immigrant living in suburban Sydney, I was always bound to grow up with dueling identities. Not completely Australian, yet not fully Asian either. This duality of forces was a common theme growing up; I loved sports, just as much as school work, I was fascinated by both economics and sciences and I was on the debate team yet would probably describe myself as mostly introverted. I soon realized that I didn’t have to pick a side, and somewhere in the middle’ was my niche. At university I pursued my love of science by completing my BSc then PhD in chemistry at UNSW. During that time, I recognized that a career in academia wasn’t for me, so I also attained a graduate certificate in research management and commercialization.

Having to carve out my own path and takes some risks career wise taught me resilience and flexibility. My ever-curious mindset and eagerness to understand new things led me to consulting gig and I eventually landed at Xinova. Today, I get to indulge in both the science and business sides of things. I work with a great team of people to prototype, develop and commercialize new technology. I work with inventors, development partners, clients and other stakeholders to turn paper inventions to real life products and/or processes. I’m constantly learning new things and meeting new people and working at Xinova has allowed me to enjoy my passion for travelling.
