When I reached 18, I was invited to join the Singapore
Armed Forces Infantry unit for my 2½ year of national service. During this
period I have learned how to drive a tank (wow !) and also how to hide without
knowing where actually I am.
I then enrolled to Nanyang
Technologies University in 1992 for my under-graduate studies. I graduated
with a Honors Degree in Electrical & Electronics Engineering in 1995.
After graduation, I worked
for NEC Electronics Singapore as a ASIC engineer
for 2 years. Then I joined Siemens Semiconductor Singapore (which is now Infineon
Technologies) as a IC Design Engineer in the communication IC department.
Currently, I am with
Infineon, in the
Optical Networking department located at San Jose, California USA.
