Do you have fun working in the lab?
Yes. It can be quite therapeutic to do some bench experiments after spending long hours staring at the computer screen. Doing experiments also allows me to satisfy my curiosity and to seek answers to the hypotheses that I have and move the projects forward.
The biggest challenge you have and how you have overcome it?
Prior to joining CPR, I do not have any prior experience in antibody generation. In my first 2 years, it was a steep learning curve for me to understand the technicalities and to catch up with the progress of antibody projects. I am very grateful to my colleagues, whom I have learned a lot from them since then.
On a weekend, what do you like to do to unwind?
I like to spend quality time with my family, bringing my kids out for cycling/swimming or to have a nice meal, playing Tennis and jogging.
What do you like most about CPR?
Research autonomy and the friendly work environment are what I love most. We are well resourced to test our research hypothesis and the autonomy to design our experiments allows us to stretch our ideas and think out of the box. To me, these are the key elements that drive innovation and I am glad to be in this privileged environment.
The friendly work culture also allows me to seek advice and discuss any problems that I have encountered. Thanks to my supportive peers, I am able to navigate through the ups and downs of research work.
