I am a research associate for the Transnational Organised Crime at Sea project. My research interests include maritime security, inter-state cooperative mechanisms for countering maritime security issues, the international relations of Southeast Asia, Malaysian politics, and Indonesian politics. These research interests constituted my PhD thesis, which focused on the role of trust in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations security community. In particular, I focused on the mediating impact of trust on the crises that occurred between Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore, with an emphasis on maritime competition and parallel maritime cooperation.
