I am a Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Dean of the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS). I am also the Executive Director of the Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences, Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).

I am a clinician-investigator with special interest in fetal growth and early development as well as women’s health. My other research interests include strategies to promote breastfeeding and intrapartum and postpartum management issues. I have over 300 peer-reviewed scientific publications, including papers in the The Lancet, JAMA, and BMJ, and received more than $150 million in research grant funding. I have numerous collaborations with industry, particularly in the area of early human development and nutrition.

In my personal capacity, I am a partner and non-executive director of the Les Amis group (http://www.lesamisgroup.com.sg/) of restaurants across South-East Asia, including the 3-Michelin-star Les Amis (http://www.lesamis.com.sg/) in Singapore.
