ABOUT

I work with the Trade, Investment and Innovation Division of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, where I manage the implementation of the Infrastructure Financing and Public-Private Partnerships Network of Asia and the Pacific with over 52 member States from Asia, Africa, and Europe in strategic partnership with the Ministry of Finance of China. 

During my research fellowship at the Institute of Asian Research, I worked at the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) at the Embassy of Canada in Yangon, Myanmar, and the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada in Vancouver, Canada. My MSc in International Political Economy (research track) at the London School of Economics focused on sustainable economic development and regional integration in Southeast Asia.
