My
Story

Work

My expertise lies in Data Analytics at the heart of a wide range of industries around the world including Healthcare (United States), Finance (London), and Construction (Singapore).

My tools are constantly evolving around technology helping companies to perform better than today, which includes but are not limited to:

  • Utilizing the latest Cloud technology in a post-Covid business climate to connect employees and businesses.

  • Making use of any collected raw data transforming, cleaning, and storing in a choice of tractable format.

  • Bridging the gap between data science and finance through automation and insightful reports adhering to the most rigorous industry standards.

  • Modeling in modern technologies such as Machine Learning, NLP, OCR, and APIs with consideration for scalability and system optimization

Education

I completed my MSc Operations Research at the Columbia University of New York - where my specialization lies in Analytics and Finance with an emphasis on Machine Learning and Optimization.

I graduated with a First-Class Honors Bachelor's degree in Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science, during which I did an investment banking internship during penultimate year and quantitative finance programming during my final year.

I finished high school at Raffles Institution, Singapore, graduating with straight As for GCE A-levels in 2011, prior to which I spent 15 years being raised in Singapore.

Leadership

While studying at Columbia University in New York, I won the popular vote in the Engineering School to become the Treasurer for Student Council. While I have sole autonomy to manage and approve a budget of U$ 170,300 per annum, I paid extra attention to care for disadvantaged societies on campus and those with special needs.

 

I also won the popular vote in my housing community "International House" for the Resident Council to organize events for an international community.

 

Lastly, I was a Bible Study group leader for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship but my goal is also for international students to gather around a place they could call home.

While studying at the London School of Economics in London, I ranked 95th percentile for an Accounting and Finance course in my first year and subsequently become an official student tutor for the school in my second year.

Before university/college, I served two years of mandatory military service in Singapore but was quickly promoted to become a Sergeant in the Boot Camp for new recruits. I commanded 30-40 recruits each batch and for downtime, I was able to travel to the Logistic camp to teach Class D vehicle camouflaging to the military drivers, while enjoying getting my hands dirty from ground up.
