Wilma is part qualified as a patent attorney. She was awarded a scholarship to support her PhD by The Croucher Foundation, a Hong Kong-based foundation whose objective is to promote excellence in sciences, and The Cambridge Overseas Trust, which supports international students who wish to study at Cambridge. Her PhD focussed on localising and characterising multidrug binding surfaces in bacterial ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters.
Whilst writing up her PhD, Wilma gained work experience at F-Star Biotechnology, a Cambridge-based company that develops bispecific antibodies, monoclonal antibodies that bind to two different targets. In 2009, she worked at Cellzome, a Cambridge-based proteomics company that was later bought by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).
Wilma joined J A Kemp in 2014. She is fluent in spoken Mandarin and Cantonese and in written Chinese.
