My research activity over the past 7 years examined if and how language is related to socio-emotional mental health, across multiple cohorts of children in Australia, UK and Singapore. I was awarded a PhD (Clinical Psychology) by the Australian National University in 2015, and continue to be a licensed psychologist. Looking ahead, I aim to understand how the potential of every child can be maximised – in particular two key developmental areas of (i) low language proficiency and (ii) low socio-emotional mental health, both around the world and in Singapore.
