ResearchSEA - Asia Research News
Southeast Asia Representative
I last worked at the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada's Singapore Regional Office as Partnership and Communications Officer. In IDRC, I was privileged to be part of a team that pioneered one of the first ICT programmes for development in Southeast Asia, enabling countries like Mongolia, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos to be first connected to the Internet.

Having left that position in 2010, I now work on several projects as an independent consultant, and "connecting the dots" based on my many years of experience in strategic partnering and communications.

As ResearchSEA's representative in SEA, I work with research institutions to reach a wider audience through publishing in the Asia Research News magazine, as well as through the ResearchSEA news portal. The news portal is subscribed to by over 1500 journalists and thousands of researchers and students. ResearchSEA also offers media-related services such as converting technical research reports into easy-to-read articles and press releases, as well as media training for researchers.

I hope you enjoy reading Asia Research News 2015 which is being distributed at the ICTD2015 Conference.
