I am an Obstetrician, Gynaecologist and Fertility Specialist with a strong interest in Laparoscopic Surgery. I obtained my Medical Degree and Master of Reproductive Medicine from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) before completing my specialist RANZCOG training with fellowships in Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility, and Minimally Invasive Gynaecology Surgery. I hold a PhD in Reproductive Biology – my thesis sought to elucidate the causes of and potential treatments for age-related poor egg quality.

I have been heavily involved in both clinical and basic science research, in particular within the field of infertility and laparoscopic surgery. Over the years, I have received a number of prestigious awards and highly competitive scholarships and grants. Please see here for details of my clinical, research and teaching achievements.

I was born in Indonesia, completed primary school in Singapore, before moving to Australia for high school and university. I am a lucky husband of one, and a proud father of two. My family is everything to me. With what little time I have outside of family and work, I enjoy weightlifting and target shooting.

My Clinical Background

My specialist RANZCOG training was undertaken across several large tertiary referral hospitals, including regional and rural placements. This component of my training allowed me to develop special skills and gain experience in all aspects of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, in particular in managing high-risk pregnancy.

For advanced training, I undertook fellowships in Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility at IVF Australia, and Advanced Minimally Invasive Gynaecology Surgery at the Sydney Women’s Endosurgery Centre (SWEC), one of the highest volume surgical units in the country, under the tutelage of world-class surgeons. These highly competitive fellowships are crucial in refining my skills and proficiency in managing complex fertility and surgical cases.

My Research Acumen

Following my undergraduate medical degree, my interest in the field of IVF led me to complete the Master of Reproductive Medicine, concurrent with full-time clinical work as a busy Intern at Liverpool Hospital. During my early years as a Junior Doctor, I continued to hone my experience and knowledge in the field of Women’s Health, culminating in multiple first-author peer-reviewed journal publications and invited speeches, prior to commencing my O&G training. In recognition of this, I received the Junior Research Staff Award from the School of Women’s and Children’s Health (UNSW).

During my specialist training, I undertook a PhD to investigate the causes of poor egg quality in older women, during which I was a dual scholarship recipient, including the prestigious National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Postgraduate Scholarship. For this research, I was awarded the best oral presentation at an international conference. The seminal findings of my PhD was published in the peer-reviewed journal Cell Reports, for which I received the Commendation for Research Excellence Award from UNSW.

I am an Editorial Board member for several international journals in the field of Women’s Health, and have been an invited reviewer for various journals in the field of O&G and Reproductive Medicine.


As a Specialist, I continue to dedicate myself to research and am currently leading a clinical trial to investigate a novel surgical technique for the treatment of endometriosis in order to maximise fertility outcome.

My Teaching Commitment

Through my academic appointment with UNSW, I regularly lecture and run tutorials for undergraduate medical students and junior doctors, and have been regularly invited as an examiner for the O&G clinical examinations. I was awarded the 2018 High Commendation Teaching Award for this endeavour. I am currently writing a number of subjects for the UNSW Master of Reproductive Medicine course.
