Senior Crop Scientist


Dickson Ng graduated from National University of Singapore studying a group of rarely seen and often misunderstood invertebrates: leeches. He intends to pursue a career in research because he believes that research and experimental work can make the world a better place by giving us depth in our understanding of it. Back in college, he partook in activities ranging from stage acting and contemporary dancing, to leading a team of students to Cambodia for a OCIP under the YEP. On weekends, you might find him riding his bicycle around the island, or if time allows, trekking the mountains of South East Asia. He sees the world through the eyes of a conservation biologist, and as such he tries to go green in all things.

Eng Seng joined Archisen as a senior crop scientist after spending more than 9 years in plant research. In his preceding positions at Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory (TLL), a leading academic institution in Singapore, he focused on the effects of environmental changes on plant growth and the molecular mechanisms underlying such responses. A plant developmental biologist by training, Eng Seng earned his PhD from the National University of Singapore in 2015 and did his post-doctoral work at TLL. In the course of his research work, he published 10 journal articles and reviews, and holds a patent on controlling the flowering of plant via regulating heat-sensitive epigenetic factors. He believes that smart-farming involving automation, IoT and data analytics, is the way to go to feed the world, and hopes to tap on his expertise to contribute to these fields.

Derrick Poh obtained his B.Sc. in Information System. He comes with seventeen years of software development experience and has worked on major projects for companies such as Citibank, Abacus, MARS and Rakuten.  He manages the software team and all aspects of software development in Archisen. Prior to joining Archisen, he has worked in Clozette and Whois.com as a Technical Manager, and BioMachines as a Senior Software Manager
