Curriculum Vitae

I received my PhD from the Cultural Studies Graduate Group in the University of California, Davis, with a Designated Emphasis in Critical Theory.

My broader research interests include critical conceptions of the urban and urban space, contemporary architectural and design history and culture, Science, Technology and Society Studies (STS) and history of technology/ environment, critical theory, cultural politics, visual and media culture and aesthetics. Until June 2022, I was part of the Asian Urbanisms Cluster at the Asia Research Institute as a Postdoctoral Fellow

I was a member of the Global Cities and STS research clusters during my Masters in Literary Studies in the National University of Singapore. At UC Davis, I was affiliated with the STS program, the Militarization, Policing, and Security Studies working group,  and the Reimagining Indian Ocean Worlds Research Cluster.

I have lectured at UC Davis, Singapore Management University (SMU), Yale-NUS College and Tembusu College (NUS). I also designed and taught the seminar "HH4091: Histories of World-making in Science, Design and Technology” under the History department at Nanyang Technological University in Semester 2, 2020-2021.

I have worked with various research organisations and projects, which include The Centre For Liveable Cities (2016), the Feminist Research Institute at UC Davis (2019), the Cities Research Cluster at SMU (2020 - 2021) as well as the "Longitudinal Study to Quantify and Qualify the Impact of the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Framework For E-Waste in Singapore” Project (2021, SMU, PI Dr Aidan Wong, in collaboration with Singapore Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment).

I am also a member of the Singapore chapter of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA).
