Hi there! I am an incoming psychology PhD student at the National University of Singapore and a part-time associate clinical research coordinator at the Singapore General Hospital. Broadly, I am interested in the application of individual differences to healthcare research.
During my free time I enjoy tinkering with mechanical keyboards, patching my raw denim jeans (wabi sabi hehe), and catching up on the latest evo psych twitter drama. I am always looking to connect with like-minded students, so please drop me an email if you would like to chat and/or work on something together!

I am currently coordinating a collaborative project between the Department of Psychology and Department of Podiatry to identify the psychological predictors of lower-limb orthotic device adherence. I indepdently conceptualised, developed, and proposed this project to fulfil the thesis requirement of my undergraduate degree.
I am also actively collaborating with my fellow lab members on the development and validation of a novel mindfulness questionnaire designed for the Singaporean population.
During my time as a clinical research intern, I was primarily involved in the generation of a mindfulness item pool designed for the Singaporean population. I also conducted a number of cognitive interviews to ensure the suitability and intelligibility of these items.
I also assisted in other research projects assessing the efficacy of mindfulness-based group interventions in clinical populations (e.g. stroke, sleep difficulties).
Under the supervison of Associate Professor Ryo Kitada and Dr Achille Pasqualotto, I conducted independent research to examine the multisensory relationships between pleasantness and softness.
In this study, we adapted the affective priming paradigm to investigate how the affective processing of visual stimuli is influced by tactile softness perception. A poster of this study was presented at the DISCOVER URECA Poster Exhibition and Competition 2019.
