Institute for Infocomm Research, A*STAR
Cognitive AI Research Intern
May 2021 – Feb 2022 Singapore
  • As part of my Bachelor’s Dissertation, I developed a 3D vision only Synthetic Dataset that showcases impossible and possible scenes, which an artificial agent must discriminate using the Violation-of-Expectation paradigm. The work was published in a NeurIPS Workshop. Supervised by Cheston Tan and Marcelo Ang.

  • Co-authored a Survey paper on Machine Learning Approaches for Modelling Intuitive Physics.

DSO National Laboratories
Machine Learning Research and Software Engineering Intern
Jun 2020 – Dec 2020 Singapore
  • Introduced a novel unsupervised deep learning approach to automated protocol reverse engineering (APRE).

  • Developed enigma, a software framework API written in Python to simplify the usability and flexibility of testing and conducting APRE analysis using multiple machine learning technique.

  • Investigated multiple unsupervised machine learning techniques as baselines for comparison against the deep learning approach. This work was publised in IEEE SSCI 2021. Supervised by Bugsy Teo.

ROS-Industrial Asia-Pacific
Robotic Software Development Intern
May 2019 – Aug 2019 Singapore
  • Developed an Autonomous Ground Vehicle (AGV) fleet controller using Robotic Operating System (ROS) C++, in the Gazebo simulation environment. Supervised by Dejanira Araiza Illan.

  • The AGV fleet controller allows the control of single/multiple AGV(s) transport orders, similar to a virtual fleet manager for mobile industrial robots, through an easy-to-use User Interface (UI).

Institute of High Performance Computing, A*STAR
Computational Aerodynamics Research Intern
Feb 2018 – May 2018 Singapore
  • Investigated the Negative Magnus Effect on the flow past a rotating cylinder at different angular velocities using Reynold-averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) models in OpenFOAM.

  • Studied the effect of varying the mesh motion methodologies, turbulence intensities and transitional RANS models in detecting the Negative Magnus Effect. Solo-presented the work during AIAA Scitech 2020 at Orlando, Florida. Supervised by Harish Gopalan.
