Personal Bio I was born and raised in Malaysia. I did my BSc and MSc in Imperial College London and currently doing my PhD (or DPhil as we call it there) in University of Oxford. I like travels, hiking, cultural exchange and I play the guitar.
Fun Fact I have traveled to 40 countries. USA is the 40th one.
Research Keywords Geometry. PDEs. Curvature.
Research Pitch My research area is in differential geometry. It is the study of geometrical object using calculus. It is not just limited to calculus: it also involves a nice mixture of linear algebra, analysis, topology, group theory, dynamical systems, et cetera. Specifically, I study the behaviour of a geometrical object as it evolves under the Ricci flow equation in which the object deforms over time in order to distribute its curvature evenly over itself. However, along the way, something wrong might happen, for example the topology of the object might change or distances on the object degenerate to zero.
