I am an Associate Professor of Sociology at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. I received my PhD in Sociology from Arizona State University and did my post-doctoral fellowship at Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore.
My main research agenda focuses on social and demographic transformations, demographic responses to social, political and economic changes and on the resulting challenges and opportunities in Asia. I also work on issues related to liveability in cities with a focus on Singapore. I have particular focus on three regions in Asia—South Asia, Singapore and Southeast Asia and Central Asia—and on the common issues faced by the diverse societies in these regions. My research agenda has four major themes: marriage and divorce, families and households, ageing and urban liveability.
