I moved back to Singapore at the start of 2020 and am currently part of the Cai Yu Group at Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory.

In addition to this, I also work in collaboration with the National Environment Agency to explore the use of the sterile insect technique and incompatible insect technique for more effective control of Dengue in Singapore.
