About

I am currently Faculty Early Career Award Fellow at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. My research focuses on understanding how social and technological environments shape the health and well-being of individuals. Currently, I am working on a number of research projects related to media use among children and youths and how it affects their well-being, parent-child communication and dietary preferences among children, as well as technological affordances for health. One major project I am working on right now is the collection and analysis of young people’s screenomes in Singapore, and identifying how different strains of media use affect youth well-being. A second major project I am working on is in understanding what constitutes high- versus low-quality digital media use for preschoolers.
