I love investigating and writing about how people interact with media and technology.

Research and Data Analysis
My research interests focus on the social implications of data, and how it influences how we think about fairness, marginalisation and sustainability.
I graduated at the top of my cohort from the University of Cambridge, with a MPhil in Sociology of Media and Culture, as a Chevening and Cambridge Trust Scholar.
My dissertation focused on data governance and civic engagement in Singapore, and was awarded the Hart-Marshall Arts and Humanities Prize.
Working with data analytics and visualisation has been a core component of my past work. Excel, SPSS and Tableau have been my primary tools, and I am well-versed in working with large datasets and data communication.
Beyond effective data analysis, I love finding creative and innovative ways to use data in storytelling (see highlights).
I was a 2022 fellow of the European Summer School on Internet Governance and part of the Fall 2021 cohort of the Atlantic Council's Digital Sherlocks open-source intelligence programme.
