Year of graduation: 2016

Supervisor: Prof Christopher Kai Shun LEUNG

Research at DOVS helped to build and propel my career to whatever I am today. Starting from learning scientific details, to planning a research study, statistical analysis, presentations skills, everything I owe to DOVS, CUHK. DOVS is best at keeping everybody abreast with current international research and I had a fantastic experience with a wide range of speakers visiting us every month with presentations, generating more research ideas and core concepts. Especially I am thankful to my mentor Prof Christopher Leung who constantly reminded me and kept me aware about the future and my ultimate aim. Also, he gave me the the wonderful opportunity to work in a variety of research areas which included basic research, clinical and experimental glaucoma. This expanded the horizon and my capabilities and prepared me to achieve my career goals. The constant support I received from Prof Calvin Pang, Prof Clement Tham and others were also immense. After I left DOVS only I realized what I am losing out on and wish I had learnt more from you when I was there. Thank you DOVS!
