Social Work, Technology, Parenting, and Interventions

I’m an assistant professor of Social Work at the National University of Singapore, researching on technology in social work.

I graduated with a PhD in social work from UNC at Chapel Hill. I did my postdoctoral at A*STAR, and Social Service Research Centre. Before academia, I practiced as a social worker at Fei Yue Family Service Centre.

I’m Singaporean 🇸🇬. In my free time, I enjoy making Scratch games with my kids.
