Teaching

My teaching philosophy is underpinned by my core beliefs that public policy education should transcend disciplinary boundaries, be connected with the realities of the complex policy world, and equip future policy makers and policy analysts with problem-solving and analytical skills. I adopt a highly student-centric, inclusive, and applied teaching strategy.

In recognition of my outstanding teaching performance, I was awarded the department-level Faculty Teaching Excellence Award by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP) in 2018 and the prestigious university-level Annual Teaching Excellence Award by the National University of Singapore in 2019.

At LKYSPP, I have primarily taught policy impact evaluation (quantitative causal policy analysis) and intermediate econometrics at the graduate level, and an elective on “Poverty, Inequality, and Public Policy”.
