IT is a great honour to hold the Jeffrey Cheah Professorship of South-East Asia Studies Chair at Harvard Kennedy School, a position that I have held since 2015. My research focuses on improving the provision of public services in developing and emerging nations. The Evidence for Policy Design programme, for which I currently serve as faculty director, also aims to improve the lives of the very poor by designing, testing and enabling better policy in developing countries.

My work, like the work of many scholars of our Kennedy School faculty, is international in scope, which is why I feel deeply fortunate to be a part of the Sunway Group and the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation’s (JCF) global network of educators. The JCF is guided by the principles of giving back to society and bringing high quality education to communities and the mission of Harvard Kennedy School - to improve public policy and leadership so people can live in safer, freer, more just and more prosperous societies - aligns closely with these principles.
