QUICK INFORMATION

I am Professor of Economics and International Development at LSE, and Director of the Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre, at LSE's Institute of Global Affairs.

I work on the shifting global economy and the rise of the east. My current writing is on global hegemony and world leadership in global economic policy-making. I think of my empirical research as seeking to make large things visible to the naked eye.

My office hours are Tuesdays 1230h-1500h - for priority, book a slot via LSE For You. (Exceptions are the weeks with 11 Nov and 02 Dec when instead office hours will be held Thu 13 Nov and 04 Dec, respectively, at the same time of day.)

At LSE I am Senior Fellow at LSE IDEAS, Academic Director of the Executive Summer School, and Chair of the Board of the LSE-PKU Summer School.

I am Tan Chin Tuan Visiting Professor in the Economics Department at the National University of Singapore. May-June 2010, I was visiting professor of economics at Tsinghua University, Beijing; April 2011, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. I served on Malaysia’s National Economic Advisory Council, 2009-2011.

My public lectures are available online, among them “East Beats West?”; “627mn Chinese”; “Global Tensions from a Rising East”; and “Economics, Democracy, and the New World Order” (available soon).
