Some real life about:
Previously I was advised by Chieu Hai Leong (DSO National Labs) and Steve Renals (University of Edinburgh). I’m also very lucky to work with Kokil Jaidka (National University of Singapore), Lambert Mathias (Facebook AI Integrity), and Jason Eisner (JHU).
In my previous career I learnt some Human Factors and Social psychology from Angela Tan and Bernice Khoo. I owe much to Dr. How Khee Yin, Chua Kuan Seah, Sng Mui Tiang, and too much to Natalia Edzgveradze.
My other cv outside the lab.
I was Singapore Women’s Chess Champion in 2005 and am unusually opiniated about whether people should play chess competitively. Easiest non-taboo topic to trigger me at a party.
