I am born and raised in Manila, Philippines and moved to New Zealand in 2012. I have worked mostly in the education sector as a higher education manager, researcher and lecturer in the Philippines, Malaysia, Australia and now New Zealand. I have published in the fields of educational leadership and management, international education and community engagement. I consider myself primarily a qualitative researcher with basic knowledge of quantitative research. Aside from doing research for publication, I have relied on my research skills to conduct organisational reviews. I also apply action research in leading change within the organisations I work for.
I love fusion cooking, watching indie films and walking. I call Wellington my home.
