As a budding singer-songwriter and author-illustrator, Rina hopes to use any medium to bring the fascinating world of the microscopic bugs and stuff into the imaginations of children everywhere.

Trained as a medical scientist with a streak of doctoral research into combating malaria (see Rina P. M. Wong), Rina presently enjoys balancing the thrills of university lecturing with the spills of mothering two kids, all alongside cultivating her inner artist and vegetable patch in sunny Perth.

Presentation Description:
Dr Rina seeks to inspire and 'edutain' through any creative medium she can, whether words, pictures, film or music. As a scientist, author-illustrator, and musician she is an experienced presenter at events ranging from local and international professional scientific conferences, universities, libraries, schools, to groups of toddlers, and young children with special needs. 

Her presentations are engaging, informative, and inspiring. She has received a number of awards for her talks. Highlights include wacky science experiments and sing-along.
