Nigel Sim

With a Masters in Biomedical Engineering from Imperial College London and his passion for education, Nigel Sim decided to combine the two. In 2015, he co-founded Chumbaka, a social enterprise to inspire children to create with technology.

Prior to this, Nigel was attached to Teach For Malaysia and taught English in a high-need secondary school in Sekinchan, Selangor for 2 years. His passion for education never dimmed his interest and knowledge in engineering.
