Welcome to my website.
I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Political Science Department at the National University of Singapore. My research focuses broadly on the relationship between market and social stability. This includes the impact of globalization on nation-states, neoliberalism as a hegemonic discourse, populist nationalism, and party politics.
I believe in engaged scholarship. Analytic research ought to be combined with community service broadly defined.
My interests outside academia are martial arts, travels, cycling, and music. I share these experiences – interpreted from a social scientific perspective – in the “Blog” section.
