I would like to briefly introduce to you my professional history. Over many years of my career in academia in the United States and in Singapore, my primary roles grew into teaching and administration. Here at S P Jain School of Global Management, I started our International Exchange Program and I am also one of the five founding faculty who developed our undergraduate business program. As Director of the International Exchange Program, I build partnerships with business schools abroad. In teaching, my areas of specialization are economics principles and economic development. I also supervise applied business research projects.
In my practical industry career, my areas of specialization are capital project analysis and public health policy-advisory. I worked at the only copper smelter and refinery in south-east Asia at the time (located in the Philippines, my home country) and conducted financial analysis of capital projects of the newly built plant. In the area of public health, I worked at the United States government’s public health agency – the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. I analyzed nation-wide databases (mostly on birth defects) and worked with epidemiologists, medical doctors, and other health-care professionals to help inform policy-makers on the costs and benefits of pre-natal screening for birth defects. I still serve occasionally as an anonymous reviewer for the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
I would also like to mention my work at an international research organization in Ethiopia – the International Livestock Research Institute of the Consultative Group of International Agricultural Research. This was a fellowship towards my PhD degree. During my three years in Ethiopia I recruited, trained, and supervised my own field team for primary data collection in the rural highlands. I also engaged with the local government agencies, rural community associations, and NGOs. This fellowship was made possible by the research grant I wrote while I was a doctoral student at the University of Hawaii.
