About

I am interested in what goes on at the intersection of education and labour markets.

In recent years, I have studied education to work trajectories that are heavily institutionalised, as well as pathways that are emerging, anticipatory, in nascent stage. As a result of these studies, I have researched elite institutions, workforce development, adult education as well as transnational education strategies, and have amassed fieldwork experience in Singapore, the United Kingdom and Sweden.

My work experience spans both the private and public sectors, and include the foreign service, research for policy and practice, and teaching. I have also been involved in community and media relations, infrastructure development, and research communication.

I received a first-class honours degree in Communications from the Nanyang Technological University, and a Master of Science in Sociology from the University of Oxford. In May 2018, I successfully defended my PhD in Sociology at Stockholm University.
