I am an Assistant Professor in Artificial Intelligence at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University, where I am a member of the Optimisation Group. I am also a teacher representative on the programme board of the Master Programme in Computer Science.

During my postdoc years, I was first a Research Fellow working in the group of Professor Roland H. C. Yap at the Department of Computer Science, National University of Singapore, and later on I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Pharmaceutical Bioinformatics Research Group led by Professor Ola Spjuth at the Department of Pharmaceutical Biosciences, Uppsala University.

My doctoral research was carried out at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University under the supervision of Associate Professor Justin Pearson and Professor Pierre Flener.

In my free time I enjoy chasing my seven year-old, hanging out with friends, running, baking, reading detective novels, knitting, eating out, travelling, and experiencing new things.
