Introduction

I study and situate the logics, ideologies and cultural politics of contemporary urban representation and design and technologically-driven futures against the backdrop of global ecological crisis.

I received my PhD from the Cultural Studies Graduate Group in the University of California, Davis, with a Designated Emphasis in Critical Theory. Using interdisciplinary methods (i.e. discourse and visual analysis, archival research and ethnography), I am interested in topics to do with critical and cultural conceptions of the urban, the global and the planetary — with respect to concepts of space, temporality and scale — and the cultural politics of ‘infrastructure’ and the historical construction and intersection of material and immaterial environments. My research engages in the fields of architectural and design history and culture; feminist Science and Technology Studies (STS) and environmental history and the history of technology; as well as critical and cultural theory, visual culture and aesthetics.

Currently based in Singapore, I am a member of the Singapore chapter of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA). I have worked with various research and cultural institutions and groups in Singapore and at UC Davis, and am interested in fostering projects of collaborative research.
