  I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Statistics from The National University of Singapore. Realizing that computers interested me more, I left for the United States where I received a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from the Florida State University. I then obtained my Doctor of Philosophy degree in Computer Science from Texas A&M University. There, my research focused on building software architectures to support knowledge sharing in digital libraries.

On returning to Singapore, I accepted a position at the Division of Information Studies, Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). I am currently an Associate Professor and Associate Chair overseeing graduate studies in the School,

My current research interests are in social media perceptions and practices, gamification techniques for shaping user perceptions and motivating behavior, and mobile information sharing and seeking. My latest projects deal with human computation games (HCGs), that is, the use of game design and game mechanics to harness collective human intelligence for task performance, as well as gamification and serious games for physical health, mental health and education.  
Doctor of Philosophy scholarship opportunities available for January 2017 and August 2017 semesters
Scholarships are available to those interested in pursuing a PhD in the areas of human computation games, and gamification techniques applied to the physical health, mental heath and education domains.

A good background in computer science, information technology or information science is necessary, as is a willingness to work hard.
