I completed my PhD in Nutrition at the University of Alberta (UofA) in 2016 with the focus on dietary management in Chinese immigrants with Type 2 Diabetes. Subsequently, I joined the Clinical Islet Transplant Program at the UofA as a Research Coordinator. I coordinated research development and grant applications, including a major New Frontiers in Research Fund Transformation grant involving over 50 local and international researchers. My other responsibilities included clinical trial applications, contract and agreement review, budget management, and reporting to industry sponsors and funding agencies. Then I worked as a Grants Administrator briefly at the Research Services Office before I started my current role of Research Partner. I am also currently a part-time MBA student at the UofA.
