I graduated from the National University of Singapore with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Life Sciences (Specialisation in Biomedical Science) and Minor in Public Health. My honours project involved the assessment of the correspondence between food labelling and actual nutrient contents of popular food products, as well as the design of a questionnaire measuring ‘Label Fluency’. Following that, I carried out two studies to investigate the individual effects of popular labels and oro-sensory experience on consumers’ calorie estimation, ideal portion selection and willingness to pay. Through this research, I developed a keen interest in contributing to the study of sensory and ingestive behaviour. As a Research Officer in the CNRC, I would like to better understand the interactions between food characteristics and individuals, and their influences on appetite control and metabolism.
