Research Interests

My research interests span widely across the disciplines of Public Law, Political Science, and Anthropology.

I am working on the Legal Foundations of Authority, and notably Authoritarian Constitutionalism, from a comparative, historical and critical perspective. In particular, I examine the ambivalent relationship between Liberalism and Authoritarianism. 

My research aims to deconstruct established dichotomies between Asian and Western understandings of the Rule of Law to embrace the possibilities of Alternative Constitutional Modernities.
