Associate Professor

Born in Hong Kong, I spent most of my formative years in Calgary, obtaining my B.Sc. (hons) in Biochemistry at the University of Calgary. I moved to Toronto in 1996 to pursue graduate studies, attaining a M.Sc. (1999) and subsequently a Ph.D. degree (2003) in Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto. From there, I moved to Ohio State University to pursue post-doctoral training in the field of circadian rhythms. In 2008, I returned to Canada to take up my first faculty position at the University of Ottawa. However, family ties drew me back to the Greater Toronto Area, and I relocated my lab in 2011 to this beautiful campus at UTM.
