I am a medical student at the University of Hong Kong with a background in Neuroscience. My research focuses on the mechanisms of neural injury in intrauterine growth restriction and how it can translate into electroencephalography (EEG) abnormalities. Previously, I have studied the differential effects of acetylcholine on synapses in the hippocampus. I find neuroscience fascinating in all its sub-fields, from synaptic plasticity to structural connectivity to neurological function, and it’s even more exciting when research results can be translated into clinical applications. I also have a long-standing interest in mathematics, and I’m always thrilled to see how mathematics can support and stimulate scientific research (in addition to existing as a brilliant field in its own right). But as much as I love academic research, I wish to see the positive impact it can have on people’s lives as well. Please drop me a line if there’s anything you would like to talk about!
