"Succeeding to the Headship of a department where I was once an undergraduate student is an enormous privilege and a responsibility which I have accepted with humility. This is where I was exposed to the disciplines of Sociology and Anthropology and encountered inspiring educators and researchers. This is where I now practice my craft – teaching and doing ethnographic research – with great personal satisfaction.  This disciplinary ‘joint-ness' and the institutional co-location of these disciplines began in 1965 when the ‘Department of Sociology' was first founded at the then University of Singapore – and persists firmly into the present. Through the decades this dual disciplinary grounding has continued to be reflected in the intellectual tenor of the department."
