  • I obtained my PhD in 2021 from the University of Hong Kong. I conducted the fieldwork in Singapore and Hong Kong. The study reveals the cultural logics of mothering practices among the educated Chinese mothers in their work-family interactions. I have presented the study in Symposium Women Constructing Work/Life Balance, Work and Family Researchers Network Conference, 19-21 June 2014, New York City. (Funded by Dr Lo Kwee Seong Education Foundation Travel and Conference Grants).

    Over the years, I have engaged in delivering tutorials for Introduction to sociology, Education and Society, Classical Social Theory, Social Policy and Decision Making, Common Core Courses: Body, Beauty & Fashion, Globalization & Migration.
