My research interests include children and youth; adolescent fertility and education; maternal and infant health; and causes and consequences of demographic change in developed countries. I employ quantitative research methods, from econometrics and casual analysis, to demographic techniques.
I was born in Singapore and received my undergraduate degree from Princeton University. I first became interested in population studies after witnessing the dramatic demographic changes in my home country within the last decade. More recently, I was a guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, and I will be joining the Sociology Department at Oxford University as a visiting student from 2014-2015.
