About me




As the CEO of LumenLab, MetLife Asia’s innovation centre, I’ve spent the last 6 years steering the company’s innovation agenda across the region and around the world, with a passion for finding new ways to help the underserved. Globally, LumenLab delivered over 70 projects and won many awards addressing the health, aging, and wealth needs of Asia-based consumers. I was also the Chairperson for Diversity & Inclusion for Asia. Before insurance, I spent 22 years in the software and tech/telecoms industry with a couple of exits including FAST (sold to Microsoft). I have been a frequent keynote speaker on matters relating to inclusion and innovation at WEF Davos, IIF, Global Summit for Women, Milken, InsurTech Connect, and elsewhere. Much of my inspiration for new thinking sprouted on the two campuses where I studied, Stanford and MIT. As a writer, I’ve written about parenting, probability, travel, culture, and hockey. I am on the Board of the Energy Market Authority of Singapore and am a Fellow in the Aspen Institute’s First Mover fellowship.
