Kelly is a fourth and final year Neuroscience and Mental Health Ph.D candidate from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore – the world’s top youngest university (QS rankings). Her love for anything brain-related stems from humble questions during her childhood such as “”why do I dream?”” and “”how does memory work?””. In a quest to better understand the human brain and mind, she did her bachelors – a double major in biological sciences and psychology – in NTU. Over the years, she has contributed to her field in many ways: she published and peer-reviewed multiple research articles, and presented her work in several global and local conferences.
She is also particularly fond of people, which explains why she is drawn to coaching and modules like “”introduction to clinical psychology””. She loves interacting with students as a graduate student instructor of undergraduate modules – two of which are co-curated and lectured by her. Outside the world of science, Kelly has volunteered for a variety of causes, including serving underprivileged children and facilitating group discussions for Singapore budget discussions.
