  • I am a Lecturer in Public Policy at the School of Social & Political Sciences, and a member of the Policy Lab at the University of Melbourne. My research interests lie at the intersection of comparative social policy in Southeast Asia, policy design, and public financial management. At the University of Melbourne, I teach Public Policy Design & Implementation, and Public Policy in an Asian Century. Prior to Melbourne, I held a fellowship at Murdoch University and have taught subjects on the politics of social policy, public financial management, and policy design at the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, and ANZSOG. My academic training is in economics and public policy from the University of Madras and the National University of Singapore.
