Daniel is a senior scientist who graduated from the School of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology in 2012. In his current work with Illumina, a biotechnology company, he specialises in sequencing technologies, synthesising both small organic molecules and large biological molecules, such as peptides and oligonucleotides. Daniel’s focus and motivation in his work has always been the application of his trade in ways that can benefit society and in the promotion of certain technologies. Before his current role, he held positions at A*STAR RIs and P&G, where he worked on biomass conversions and peptide-based drugs. His jobs have always required him to be independent, curious, and communicative, with an added dash of entrepreneurial spirit for venturing into the unknown.
