I am a medical research scientist who has lived in 4 countries. Of Chinese origin, I was born in South Africa, and after graduating with a PhD, I moved to Maryland in the USA where I lived for 4 years. I then immigrated to Brisbane, Australia where I lived for 10 years after which I relocated to Edinburgh, Scotland in 2001. After 8 years, I moved back to Brisbane. Using these cities as a base, it has allowed me to travel and explore extensively the cultures of Southern Africa, the Far East, Western Europe, the US, Middle East and Australasia. I am currently located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where I'll be based for at least 3 years and hope to explore the Middle East in depth.
