Registered as a doctoral student at the Institution for public health and clinical medicine. My area of research focuses on Lipedema, a chronic disease affecting women that manifests as an asymmetric distribution of fatty tissue, commonly on the extremities. Additionally, it is associated with other symptoms such as pain. My research initially has a qualitative approach using interviews but is planned to be of a more clinical disposition in future studies.
Apart from my doctoral studies I work as a M.D. at the Department of Dermatology and Venereology at NUS.
I instruct medical students during their clinical practice at the Department of Dermatology and Venereology as well as have been a teaching assistant during the dermatology course.
