Graduate life can be daunting for many. Together with Office of Graduate Studies (OGS), we aim to create a balanced and conducive research environment through synergistic networking and memorable experiences for our graduate students, in our strive to make the world a better place through design and technology. Other than indulging in sleep, I run to eat - toggling between gaining and shedding weight.

The life must be to be caught up when we feel young, energetic and motivated, as Cemal Süreyya wrote in his poem "life is short, birds are flying". For me, life is meaningful if we have fun while facing all the challenges. I know that PhD is a hard process in our lives which even a minute is priceless for all of us. But I think we all need some break times. Therefore, I am willing to reveal inner little fun sparks by gathering you all for variant activities throughout the PhD process.

Academic Director

Each and every graduate student might have a different story to tell of their academic journey in SUTD. My mission is to make this story as exciting and intellectually rewarding as it can be - filling it with academic events and initiatives that will not only promote cross-disciplinary networking and collaboration but also opportunities for continual learning and professional development. I'm always up for a chat, so feel free to strike a conversation with me anytime! :)
