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. Before switching to sociology for my graduate studies, I studied computer science and engineering and received my B.Eng (First Class) degree from University of Madras.

My research focuses on social and demographic transformations and their implications in Asia. I’m particularly interested in marriage and divorce, families and households, and ageing in South, Southeast and Central Asia. My work has appeared in leading population and demographic journals including Population and Development Review, Population Studies, Demographic Research and Social Science & Medicine.

I teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students. My teaching areas include courses related to population, social policy, quantitative research designs and methods, and ageing. I was honoured to receive the Koh Boon Hwee Scholars Award, a university-wide award in recognition of inspirational teaching and mentorship.

I’m currently the vice president of the Asian Population Association. I have served as a reviewer for over 30 journals, publishers and grant agencies including  top ranked journals in multiple fields such as Demography, Journal of Marriage and Family, and The Lancet Global Health. I was sole associate editor of the journal Asian Population Studies for ten years and currently a member of its Editorial Board.
