I am interested in what goes on at the intersection of education and labour markets. In recent years, I have studied elite institutions, workforce development, adult and higher education as well as transnational education strategies. These various research projects have allowed me to gather fieldwork experience in Singapore, the United Kingdom and Sweden. My work experience spans both the private and public sectors, and includes the foreign service, research for policy and practice, public relations and teaching. I have also worked with community and media relations, infrastructure development, and research communication.
In May 2018, I will defend my doctoral dissertation that is tentatively titled, Aspiring and Anticipating: A longitudinal study of aspirants transitioning from education to work and into weak-form occupations.
