STATEMENT OF ART:
I am an advocator of design thinking and bears multi-disciplinary aptitudes in conducting my research whilst borrowing from various theoretical traditions (critical, post-colonial, and Asian-centric) to enhance my artistic sensibility. I regularly collaborate on trans-disciplinary teams with scholars in different fields. I believe in the importance of fostering strong community-based partnerships and developing capacity-building opportunities for all those involved, particularly community organizations and members.
