In this seminar, I will provide insights into what research and development is like at P&G. At more than 180 years old, P&G continues to improve lives of 5 billion consumers worldwide and by doing so, continues to bring financial growth to our investors for 130 consecutive years. All these are made possible by our people, values and at the centre of it, innovation. At P&G, innovations are created everyday by more than 6,900 researchers located in 13 innovation centres globally. With diverse disciplines spanning across product research, packaging development, data & modelling sciences and biosciences, we bring to life irresistible superior products that delight our consumers. In addition, I will share my own experiences, journey and believes. In doing so, I hope to demystify the career paths for STEM graduates and provide guidance to anyone to bring out his/her full potential.
I obtained my BSc (1st Class Honours) with biological sciences major and business minor from NTU in 2009. After graduating, I was awarded the NRF (EWT) PhD scholarship and joined Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) where I completed my PhD in 2013. I am currently the Group Head of Research & Development for Microbiology at Procter & Gamble, where I am leading strategic product development and key digital transformation programmes.
