About the Speaker

Yi’En is Research Fellow in the Asian Migration Cluster of Asia Research Institute (ARI) at the National University of Singapore. His research interests are transnational migration, global education, and youth. He has studied and published on the topics of international marriages, student migration, and more recently, higher education’s role in producing citizenship. The work on international marriages focused on how gender power and identities are negotiated within cross-cultural and transnational contexts, and the role that the family and everyday economic concerns play in mediating personal understandings of love and intimacy. Prior to joining ARI, he was postdoctoral fellow at Yale-NUS College.
