A research neuroscientist of 8 years offering biology lessons in Johor Bahru


I have previously mentored many students, final year undergraduates and even fellow junior colleagues during the past 8 years. The best way to excel in a given topic is to have proper understanding of the process, hands on experience coupled with graphical illustrations.


I have 8 years of wet lab research experience in both the university & hospital setting. I specialize in neuroscience working on Drosophila (fly) models of Parkinson's Disease. I am currently looking to share my knowledge with the future generation and hopefully inspire them to love science just as I do.
