Personal profile

Biography

I started my academic career as a university lecturer and worked in schools in Australia while doing my MA and PhD degrees in educational studies at the University of Queensland (UQ). I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at UQ before becoming a lecturer at Monash University.

I am currently a Senior Lecturer in graduate employability, globalisation and intercultural education at Faculty of Education, Monash University. My main current research agenda is graduate employability in which I examine how graduates develop resources and capitals to manage their post-study career in various contexts. I have published comparative research in Australia, Japan and Vietnam. I initiated the series of Alumni Experience Conference https://www.monash.edu/alumniconference. This series of conferences aim to close the gap between graduates and current students.

I have also done research and teaching in globalization and internationalisation of education. Having acknowledged that the world is becoming a 'global village', I am interested in doing research on intercultural education, especially on investigating how pedagogies work in different socio-cultural contexts. I have done research on how to bring western pedagogies into non-western classrooms and how to embed non-western cultural and intellectual resources into western curricula. 

My main teaching areas are trasition from university to workplace, graduate employability, intercultural education, pedagogical practices, globalisation, school-family partnership and research methodology.
