I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Nanyang Technological University, where I am the coordinator of the Minor in Gender and Diversity Studies, and previously the convenor of the Gender and Diversity Research Cluster (2021-2023). From AY2025, I will be a Lecturer in Political Philosophy at the University of Sheffield.

In 2020-2021, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society, Stanford University. I completed my DPhil in Philosophy at the University of Oxford, MPhil in Philosophy at University College London, and MA and BA (Hons) in Philosophy at the National University of Singapore.

My research interests centre, broadly, on issues in moral and political philosophy. My current research — supported by three grants — explores (i) our ethical and political obligations to remember wrongdoing, (ii) the justification of radical and uncivil aspects of political resistance, and (iii) the character of commemoration.

I have taught various courses in moral and political philosophy in various institutions.
