Upon obtaining my BEng (Hons) in EEE with a Minor in Psychology from Nanyang Technological University in 2010, I joined DSO National Laboratories, Singapore's defense research organization, as a Research Engineer. In my 5 years at DSO, I've worked on and developed machine vision algorithms for airborne systems, and delivered image processing and analysis tools for the airforce. 2013 marked an important turning point for me when I was awarded the DSO Postgraduate Scholarship, in recognition of my contributions to the organization, and an opportunity to further my studies at UIUC. Currently, I am working in Professor Minh Do's Computational Imaging Group, focused on image and signal processing with deep neural networks.
