About me

I research what goes on at the intersection of education and labour markets, paying special attention to vocations, trajectories and temporality. In recent years, I have examined education-to-work pathways that are institutionalised, as well as pathways that are emerging and anticipatory. These projects have permitted me to study elite institutions, vocational education as well as transnational education strategies, and have allowed me to amass fieldwork experience in Singapore, the United Kingdom and Sweden. You can read more about my recent research projects and publications here.

Before life in academia, I worked in both the private and public sectors, for the foreign service as well as conducted research for policy and practice at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies and Institute for Adult Learning in Singapore. Through these work chapters, I have been engaged in infrastructure development and research communication.

I received my PhD in Sociology from Stockholm University, a Master of Science in Sociology from the University of Oxford, and an honours degree (first class) from the Nanyang Technological University's Wee Kim Wee School of Communication.
