Online Academic Profile
Politics & International Relations
I am currently a Nanyang Assistant Professor in Public Policy and Global Affairs at NTU Singapore, an Associate Fellow at EU Centre Singapore, and a Convenor of the ECPR Standing Group on the Politics of Higher Education, Research, and Innovation. I was previously a postdoctoral researcher at ARENA - Centre for European Studies, and the Academic Coordinator of UACES collaborative research network on the European Research Area (2013-2016). My research interests lie at the intersection of public policy, regionalism, and international relations. My research projects examine academic mobility to and from major knowledge hubs in the world, how governments in Asia and Europe compete for talent in a globalised world, how scholarly networks are organised across time, and the emergence and evolution of higher education regionalisms. I studied political science at Berkeley (BA), European public administration at Leiden (MA), European politics and society at Oxford (MPhil) and politics and international studies at Cambridge (PhD).
