My career in healthcare began in Australia where I trained as a physiotherapist and subsequently gained work experience in a public healthcare institution in Singapore. I collaborated with a multidisciplinary team to improve hospital-wide operations following Joint Commission International (JCI) standards. I gained Six Sigma certification and have applied lean management methodology in my daily work and projects. An opportunity to live and work in Switzerland provided me the chance to further my education and complete a Masters in Health Economics and Policy.
I have a special interest in applied econometrics, experimental economics and policy evaluation. During my internship, I quantitatively analyzed the role and effects of health shocks on job satisfaction in Switzerland, and presented the results of this work in my thesis. I am seeking the right opportunity to build my corporate career with an international cross-functional team to support product lifecycle and development with evidence-based economic modeling in a pharmaceutical or medical devices company. I am highly self-motivated, independent, proactive and able to learn and adapt quickly to new environments and challenges.
My keen sense of analysis and attention to detail will be an asset in complex and highly demanding projects. I have a deep understanding of cultural diversity and have nurtured excellent communication skills with diverse groups of people through living and working in different continents.
