Materials Science

I’m a Materials Scientist and Science Writer. I stumbled upon the book ‘Physics of the impossible’ in high school, which got me hooked to the idea of becoming a scientist. After graduating with a PhD in carbon nanotubes from NTU, Singapore, I moved to Canada. It took me a while to realize that what I enjoy most about science is the writing process, especially tailoring insights for non technical audiences. So I have started working as a freelance writer, and hope to make a living doing that in the near future.
