She is prolific in her quest to fill in the blanks in the DNA ‘book of life’ with regards to genetic determinants of breast cancer and women’s health. She has co-authored more than a hundred peer-reviewed articles in top-tier journals. She is a recipient of a Career Development Award (2013) from the Singapore Agency for Science, Technology and Research Joint Council Office, a L’Oréal-UNESCO International Fellowship (2014–15), multiple institutional grants and awards from private foundations in Sweden (2016) and a Singapore National Research Foundation Fellowship Award (2017).

She credits all the women who contributed to the large-scale studies with time, blood and samples, without whom none of the work would have been possible.
