My area of specialization is comparative politics. Within that subfield, I focus on ethnic politics, public policy, and the political economy of development. My research is mainly situated in Southeast Asia, especially Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. I've spent over five years on-location in the region in private sector and academic roles. My research has appeared in numerous outlets and has been supported by funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), UC Pacific Rim Research Program (PacRim), the Center on Emerging and Pacific Economies (EmPac), and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada.
