I am an Associate Professor of Political Science in McMaster University, Canada. My work focuses on authoritarian resilience and the political representation of women and ethnic minorities. I am interested in the socio-political developments in East and Southeast Asia, especially given my early education and work experience in Singapore. I am presently pursuing several interrelated research projects. The first is the completion of my book manuscript on Hegemonic Party Survival in Singapore and Taiwan, and the second concerns the effects of electoral manipulations and social media on authoritarian regimes. Additionally, I am also working on new methods to study the substantive representation of elected women and minority leaders. You will find more information about my research, teaching and other collaborations on this website.
