I am an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. I received my Ph.D. in Criminology from the University of Pennsylvania, where I also received a B.A. in Psychology, and B.A. and M.S. in Criminology. From 2013-2014, I was a Visiting Scholar at the Institute of Criminology at the University of Cambridge.
My research focuses on the etiology of criminal and antisocial behavior, and interventions for such behavior. I examine the role of biological factors and how they can be integrated with psychological and social environmental variables to gain a more complete understanding of the mechanisms underlying antisocial behavior. Specifically, I study psychophysiological factors such as heart rate, brain mechanisms using non-invasive brain stimulation and neuroimaging methods, and nutrition in relation to crime and antisocial behavior.
