Programme in Emerging Infectious Diseases

After more than 20 years of research into emerging zoonotic infectious diseases, working at Duke-NUS has provided me with a fresh start. I have the opportunity to work more closely with clinicians and to achieve a more direct impact on human health.

I had numerous reasons for joining Duke-NUS. Firstly, both Duke and NUS are internationally highly ranked universities. Secondly, I was particularly attracted to the concept of an American style university in Singapore, with the seamless fusion of Western and Eastern culture and philosophy. And lastly, my whole family (a fusion family with two born in Shanghai, one in California and one in Melbourne) loves Singapore (as evident from the happy and smiling faces when we had our family holiday here in 2006).

I am glad to be part of a young and upcoming university and to help build a team ready to fight future emerging infectious diseases in Singapore and the region.

Human Resources Department

I have worked in Duke-NUS since July 2008. The journey from the old colonial campus at Jalan Bukit Merah, to the current modern building at College Road has been a fulfilling and rewarding journey. As the School continues to grow, there will be even more challenges to face. However, with everyone’s strong support, I am confident we can achieve what have we set out to do as a team! What keeps me here is the camaraderie within the team, as well as the recognition given and the opportunities to grow with the School. I look forward to many more good years ahead!
