Biography

MPhil, BCL (Oxford); LLB (NUS)

My research lies primarily within two broad areas: private law, and commercial law. In addition to the doctrine, I maintain a wider interest in its philosophy; in particular, in its concepts and their justifications. Within private law, my research has thus far focussed on the laws of contract, restitution for unjust enrichment, estates, insolvency, and trusts. I am also especially interested in remedial issues, and have taught Commercial Remedies on the BCL.

I obtained my LLB from the National University of Singapore. Upon graduating in 2014, I was immediately appointed an inaugural Sheridan Fellow, lecturing and tutoring for a year. I then arrived at Oxford as a Clarendon Scholar in 2015, where I read for the BCL and MPhil. I am currently working on my DPhil on the idea of standing in private law, under the co-supervision of Professors Robert Stevens and Sandy Steel.
