I grew up in Singapore and served as an "AI" (armored infantry) officer before coming to Stanford.
In 2012, I joined Coursera as its third employee. I served as Director of Partnerships and Course Operations for two years, during which I built a team of 25 people working with thousands of instructors and staff from 100+ schools, and then as the product manager in charge of university-facing products. I returned to Stanford in 2015, working for a year with Anshul Kundaje on computational biology.
