My research interests span a number of areas but broadly, they can be categorised as
- research on Asian diasporas, including China, Singapore, Malaysia and India. A related area is my work on the middle classes in China and India.
- research on the relationship between nation and technology. Malaysia and the Multimedia Super Corridor is the main focus of my research here.
- research on ethno-religious minorities and co-existence. I’ve done some work on the Malaysian-Indian community in this area.
- research on the relationship between technology, especially the internet and their non-users.
