Research Interests

Cindy's PhD research focuses on the biogenesis of the pyrenoid in the chloroplast and regulation of the carbon concentrating mechanism (CCM) of a green alga, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. This is a part of the Combining Algal and Plant Photosynthesis research project where she first became interested in the issue of global food security.

Previously, she studied Erasmus Mundus Masters in Forensic Science in three institutions in Spain, Portugal and the UK, and did a research project on the DNA profiles of Malaysian Chinese and Malay populations living in the UK.
