MBBS, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine
MPH, Boston University

Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology. He also works with the Framingham Heart Study (FHS), where his research focuses on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) – pressing public health issues at hand. Trained as a physician, his clinical experience in tertiary hospitals and overseas humanitarian missions has inspired him to pivot towards public health research, to improve current clinical guidelines and practice of neurocognitive disorders. His research primarily involves data analyses and management of AD and TBI research, where he enjoys taking an agnostic approach to tackling different scientific questions, implementing different study designs and adopting both conventional statistical and machine-learning analytic techniques. He works closely with Dr. Rhoda Au on numerous multi-site collaborative research projects, harnessing the expertise and resources from other academic institutes and industries, in an effort to advance research in the brain health domain. Beyond his personal research interests, he is an avid believer in team science and plays a crucial role in spearheading data-sharing efforts and advocating for open data movement at FHS.
