Jonathan describes himself as a go-getter. His aspiration to gain experiences in a new country led him to New Zealand. Originally from Singapore, Jonathan joined the AbacusBio team as a research intern while completing his honours degree at the University of Otago. His role has since evolved towards providing research and communications support to the team.
Jonathan has worked on a wide breadth of projects: reviewing literature, generating reports, and developing content for newsletter publishing. He also contributes actively to funding applications for research programs, both locally and internationally. In 2017, Jonathan started a PhD at the University of Otago and remains at AbacusBio part-time.
