While originally from Taiwan, Carol has lived in New York, Hong Kong, Rome, and London. She graduated from University College London in 2015 with a first class BSc in Human Sciences. Thanks to the interdisciplinary nature of her degree, Carol had the opportunity to study a diverse range of disciplines in both natural and social sciences, from pharmacology to project management. She received a first on her dissertation, which explored the roles of modernisation in the treatment methods of depression in post-Mao China; this sparked her interest in the pharmaceutical industry and led to her application for the Analyst role at Costello Medical’s Singapore office.

During her time at UCL, Carol developed a passion for science communication and was a science section sub-editor of UCL’s student-run magazine, Pi. She also worked on a number of other science communication projects, including the production of a science radio show.

Carol also gained experience working in a business environment as an intern for a marketing company in Taiwan; the experience prompted her to study for the Chartered Institute of Marketing Level 3 Foundation Certificate, for which she was awarded a distinction.

Having joined Costello Medical’s Singapore office in January 2016, Carol is excited to help contribute to the growth of the company in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as to develop her skills through working with the talented team in Singapore.
