Nephrology publications

Research is critical for the development of nephrologists, and more importantly, improving the treatment and care of renal patients. It has been my joy and privilege to have contributed and co-published the following studies.

On a more personal note

Originally from Singapore, I migrated to Australia at the age of 4. I have been fortunate enough to have grown up with these two different cultures and benefited from their influences. Being a doctor has allowed me to give back to my community as I guide people on their health journey. I enjoy the day to day conversations I have with my patients about their lives and I genuinely learn something from every individual.

When I’m not working, I enjoy quiet family time with my husband, two beautiful children and our small dog. I like cooking, gardening, and planning our future travels.
