Research

Here's a list of research projects I've been a part of recently


As a Research Associate at Nanyang Technological University, I co-authored a paper in Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism on the relationship between cultural taboos and nationalism in Singapore.

SISIR originated as the Industrial Research Unit, with Colombo plan assistance during the Cold War. Over time it expanded its work to cover standardisation, metrology, and industrial information services.
 
I began looking into this incredibly important, but often overlooked, institution as a Lee Kong Chian Research Fellow at Singapore's National Library Board (NLB).


The first publication to emerge from this was a fun, short piece I wrote for NLB in-house magazine BiblioAsia on the cultural politics of making crash helmets mandatory.

Comparative Covid Response

Comparative Covid Response: Crisis, Knowledge, Policy (CompCoRe) is a comparative study of national responses to the COVID-19 pandemic from a science and technology studies (STS) perspective.

It consists of teams from sixteen countries coming together to try to understand why countries varied so enormously in their approaches to the pandemic. I am part of CompCoRe's Singapore team.
