Welcome! This website offers findings from my research on international sociology and on behaviour, attitudes, culture, policy, and other socio-economic aspects of life in East and Southeast Asia.
For easy reference, publications are classified into three categories: health sociology; family sociology; and a general category comprising publications on social class, professions, social policy and general sociology. Whenever possible, I provide the journals' links to the full text of the articles and for books, the links to the publisher. For publications not available online, I provide the abstract and table of contents or the text.
