Rose recently joined CEPMLP as Project Manager of the Extractives Hub project. She has a PhD degree in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering from Tufts University in the United States.

She developed several case studies for the transboundary water disputes database at Tufts and facilitated water diplomacy workshops that aims to facilitate capacity building, negotiations and consensus building.
Prior to her PhD, Rose worked for a couple of years at the Singapore Building and Construction Authority as a Senior Development Officer on green building policy and legislation and as a Senior Consultant on the bilateral Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city project. Rose had substantial trainings in computer modelling and data science and is interested in applying data science in natural resources management.
