  • Research Fellow, Social Service Research Centre, NUS
I am a research fellow at the Social Service Research Centre, National University of Singapore. I have a Ph.D. in social work from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work. I had also practiced as a social worker in a family service centre in Singapore.
As a social work researcher, I am interested in researching parenting, family services in the community, and risk assessment. I am especially interested in intervention research and in the use of administrative data to improve social work processes. I also identify as a methodologist where the through line connecting my research interests involved the use of computational social science methods and advanced statistical methods.
