Asst Prof Arul Indrasen Chib
Dr. Arul Chib focuses on mobile phone healthcare systems, and pursues action-oriented research in varied cross-cultural contexts, particularly in resource-constrained environments. He investigates the key factors influencing the adoption of technology for positive health outcomes, and has engaged in the design and development of healthcare technology systems spanning online and mobile platforms. Global collaborations with IDRC, UNICEF, and UNFPA have led to research grants of S$3.7Mn. His work with Acehnese midwives has led to great interest in the field of mobile health (mHealth) technologies. Of note is that the original JAVA application for mobile phones was developed in 2006, well in advance of the latest innovations in mobile-based applications. This ground-breaking technology to improve maternal and infant health was developed for 223 rural midwives based in the tsunami-affected region of Aceh Besar, Indonesia, impacting as many as 600 villages. This ICT project, facilitated by cell phones and data sending mobile technology, uses the existing pool of knowledge in the rural health system to bolster local resources. Prior to working on tsunami relief, Dr. Chib collaborated with a Peruvian NGO, Instituto Peruano de Paternidad Responsable, to develop an interactive computer-based multimedia game to deliver information about sexual and reproductive health, particularly about HIV/AIDS. Dr. Chib is currently extending his work in mHealth by examining issues of power and influence caused by the mobile phone usage amongst community healthcare workers in Papaua New Guinea, Thailand, India, and China. Dr. Chib's contributions have led to a number of research awards, including the 2011 Prosper.NET-Scopus Award for the use of ICTs for sustainable development. This award was accompanied by a fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, one of the highest honours within the European scholarly tradition. He has been awarded fellowships at Ludwig Maxmilians University and University of Southern California, and the Best Graduate Student Award of S. I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University. He serves on the editorial boards of Human Communication Research and Communication Yearbook, the flagship publications of the International Communication Association. Chib has published in the best refereed journals, such as the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, ranked first amongst Thompson Reuters communication journals, the Journal of Health Communication, ranked first amongst health communication journals, and Information Technologies & International Development, ranked first amongst journals in the field of information and communication technologies for development. He has contributed to book chapters from leading publishers such as Cambridge Scholars, Hampton Press, Springer, and Taylor & Francis. In 2012, along with Dr. Roger Harris, he released the edited volume, Linking Research to Practice (2012, ISEAS Singapore). His research papers have been adopted as syllabi in institutions in Copenhagen, Geneva, Manila, and Virginia. He is currently working on the authored book, mHealth in Developing Countries (forthcoming, Taylor & Francis UK). Dr. Chib’s work in as many as nine countries has been profiled in media outlets ranging from the United Nations Chronicle to the Singaporean press. He has been a guest speaker at numerous global events, and in 2012, gave the keynote speech at the Media Health Communication Conference in Munich. He is a member of the organizing committees of the IFIP 8.6 2013 and ICTD 2012 conferences. As Assistant Director at the Singapore Internet Research Center, Dr. Chib leads the Strengthening Information Society Research Capacity Alliance programme. This multi-year capacity building programme has mentored 30 emerging researchers in Asia, Africa and Latin America, and organized training events in Atlanta, Bangkok, Jamaica, and Singapore.

Asst Prof Hallam Stevens
My research focuses on the intersection between information technology and biotechnology. His forthcoming book -- Life out of Sequence: bioinformatics and the introduction of computers into biology (http://press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/L/bo16744390.html) -- is an historical and ethnographic account of the changes wrought to biological practice and biological knowledge by the introduction of the computer. Especially in highly computerized fields such as genomics, the computer has changed how biologists work, how biologists collaborate, and how biologists make knowledge. I am currently working on two other book projects. First, I am writing a general audience book about biotechnology under the title "Biotechnology and society." This book will examines the social, cultural, political, and economic effects of biotechnologies from a range of disciplinary perspectives (including history, sociology, anthropology, and philosophy). Second, I am co-editing a book with Sarah Richardson (Department of History of Science and Department of Women and Gender Studies, Harvard University) that reflects on recent developments in the biosciences from a social science perspective. The tentative title of that work is "Postgenomics." I am also working on several new projects that examine the production of knowledge in the biosciences in Singapore and Asia. These projects examine, amongst other things, the use of laboratory spaces and the use of 'big data' in scientific work.

Asst Prof James Patrick Williams
Professor Williams is trained in the symbolic interactionist tradition of sociology, a social-psychological perspective that foregrounds language and meaning as key dimensions of understanding the everyday life. Prof Williams' research focuses on two specific areas of interest: youth sub/cultures, and digital media cultures. Much of Prof Williams' publications in recent years have centered on the construction of subcultural selves/identities among young people who feel in some way separate from mainstream society. His main contributions to sociology have been theorizing (1) the role new media technologies play in facilitating the development and diffusion of subcultures and subcultural identities and (2) theorizing the social construction of subcultural authenticity. His second interest relates to the increasing salience of fantasy and digital games in everyday life. He has co-edited two books related to fantasy and video games and is interested in issues of role-identity and deviant behavior within digital environments.
Asst Prof Joan Marie Kelly
Assistant Professor Joan Marie Kelly is an artist and has been a faculty member of the School of Art Design and Media since 2005. She received a Master in Fine Arts from Western Connecticut State University and a Bachelors Degree from Maryland Institute College of Art graduating Magna Cum Laude. Art critic, Paul Khoo states: "Kelly operates in zones of contact, a theme elaborated in the 2006 Sydney Biennale: places where competing narratives of power compete, where silences speak to unwritten histories. Kelly reinvents the body through the environment of these zones: be it the foreign worker chattels of Little India, the brothels of Calcutta, or the factory towns of the Shenzen Economic Zone. These zones mark the intersection of the grand narrative of globalization and progress with those of the lived reality of those at the bottom of the pyramid. The recent trip to Arunchal Pradesh brings Kelly to another zone, one where a traditional, rural economy clashes with the forces of globalization." Joan Kelly has a growing exhibition record. Recent exhibitions include: Rajamangala University of Technology 2010, Ahuja Museum Kolkata India 2010, Mae Fah Luang Art And Cultural park Thailand 2010, Kolkata Academy of Fine Arts Kolkata 2009, India Fauzia Museum, Universiti Sains Malaysia 2008, International Drawing Biennial in the Czech Republic October 2008.
Asst Prof Julien Cayla
My first research stream has to do with the politics and dynamics of consumer culture in India, looking more specifically at the nexus between marketers, cultural producers and consumers and their relationship to the globalizing Indian economy. This research stream is at the intersection of South Asian studies, history, anthropology and consumer culture theory. My second research stream can be called Inside Marketing, and has to do with the inner workings of the marketing profession i.e. the beliefs and practices of marketing professionals, and other cultural producers participating in the construction of markets. The book I edited with Detlev Zwick, on this research stream, titled Inside Marketing was published in 2011 by Oxford University Press and has received very favorable reviews. In Organization Studies, James Fitchett calls Inside Marketing “one of the most important collections on marketing published to date”.

KEYWORDS: Art & Ecology; Art & Society; Nature in Art & Visual Cultures; "indigenous"/Southeast Asian Conceptions of Nature; Migrations of Nature & Culture; Cultures of Science; DNA--its possibilities, ideology and poetics; The Posthuman Turn; Animal Studies; Wildlife Trafficking; Cultural & Natural Heritage; Material Cultures; Nature as Agent; Material-Led Research. Trees. Wood. Birds. Lucy's current art practice and writing revolves around the may ways in which nature intervenes in human cultural life in Southeast Asia. Lucy is founder of the Migrant Ecologies Project www.migrantecologies.org. Work with the Migrant Ecologies Project involves a three year art practice and writing research into of stories of, and relationships between, humans, wood and trees and humans in our region, where trees and wood are explored as material, magic, metaphor, ecological resource and historical agent. Part of the research for the Migrant Ecologies Project is carried out while Lucy is Artist in Residence with Double Helix Timber Tracking Technologies--a company dedicated to combatting illegal logging through DNA profiling of timber. The conceptual part of this research engages theoretical intersections of contemporary art practice, posthumanist theory and material culture. The aesthetic explorations in this research involve a reflexive recasting of the material, form and content of the Singapore modern woodcut movement through myriad histories of art, nature and life in Singapore/Malaya. The first two productions coming out of the Wood:Cut; research were exhibited at Post Museum gallery in May 2009 and The Substation art centre, Singapore November 2009 respectively. Both received considerable local and international press attention. These exhibitions comprise outputs from an RGB startup grant. Outputs were nominated for the Asia Pacific Signature Art Prize organized by the Singapore Art Museum in July of 2011 Stage three of research process involves the awarding of a Tier 1 Grant (March 2010) for "The Secret Lives of Forest Products -- Tracing “memories” of Southeast Asian forest products in time & space". This is an interdisciplinary investigation combining contemporary art, biology and DNA timber tracking technology in collaboration with Double Helix Tracking Technologies, where Lucy is currently Artist in Residence. [doublehelixtracking.net] Lucy is PI on this project. Co-PI's and collaborators are Shannon Castleman (ADM), Shankar Iyerh (Double Helix Tracking Technologies), Shawn Lum (NSSE NIE, President of Nature Society of Singapore) and Dr Andrew Lowe.

Asst Prof Marijke Van Kets
Research on Cinematography A study on the perception of cinematic technique and its influence on film language. The research focuses on the use of cinematic technique by the director of photography when shooting a feature film. Is this juggling with technical properties: lenses, lights, speed, shutter, f-stop and so on, effective? Can cinematography influence how audiences perceive movies? I argue that the application of cinematic technique adds additional layers of meaning, nuance and emotional context to shots and scenes along with their objective content. The study also suggests that the use of cinematographic differentials like composition, three-dimensional field and lens language, contributes to the film language.
Asst Prof Md Saidul Islam
Dr. Saidul Islam has been trained in international development and environmental sociology with particular emphasis on the global agro-food system, global commodity networks/chains, global environmental governance, agrarian change, and labor and gender dimension in rural development. At the core of his research interests lies the conviction that there is a need to devise development models, consistent with local culture and knowledge, which are socially and technologically sound, environmentally and economically sustainable and friendly, culturally responsible, and have meaningful participation and trust of local communities. All these can broadly be conceived as, and expressed through, "sustainable development" or "global social/environmental justice." As "social/environmental justice" in sustainable international development is largely an analytical core of his research interests, apart from his PhD research (Environmental governance in the global agro-food system: A study of shrimp aquaculture in Bangladesh), Dr. Saidul Islam also has a complementary interest in issues such as identity politics or discursive construction of identities in development discourse (Islam 2003; 2005), multiculturalism and migration (Islam and Islam 2007; Islam 2002) and the Grameen Bank as a route to pro-poor development (Islam 2006). It's relevant to note here that his article in the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs is being used as a course reading in different universities all over the world including Harvard University. He is committed to working more on other issues of social/environmental justice related to sustainable development in future. Currently, as a principal researcher he is working on a global project-"Privatizing environmental governance: A global analysis of the effects and effectiveness of environmental certification for farmed salmon and shrimp"-that was awarded a Standard SSHRC (Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada) Grant 2007-2010. This research proposes to assess the effects and effectiveness of environmental certification and related approaches through a detailed multi-site study of how certification is being implemented for farmed salmon and shrimp. The study will cover Bangladesh and Thailand as two significant shrimp production sites; Chile and Canada as two major production sites of farmed salmon; and Japan, Canada, the United States and the European Union as the major sites of consumption.

Assoc Prof Oh Soon-Hwa
Associate Professor Oh's research interest focuses on the artist and dealer relationship. Based on her observation and experience as an emerging artist in NYC, she developed a study that explored the cultural, social, and psychological roles of the networks of relationships among artists and art world professionals. By employing a qualitative research method of case study she documents and analyzes the experiences and practices of emerging artists in NYC and in Paris, and their significant art dealers, curators, and collectors. The study identifies various roles of networks of relationships and examines in which ways their relationships contribute to the development of their creative works. She is the author of the book "From art school to art world" (2009). Her more recent research focus lies on the interaction between Art & science, Photography & Technology. Teaching and researching on digital photography has incited her to explore and expand the boundaries of the photographic medium by collaborating with scientists in various projects in development. In her photographic practice, her interest lies in documentary projects that deal with issues of identity, gender, and human condition. For instance, her “Girls from Mekong Delta” essay is a semi-documentary project that explores the identity and environment of young Vietnamese women from a small island nicknamed “Taiwanese Island” who intend or are pushed to marry foreigners in their quest to have a better life and to support their own family. This project was Finalist (2009) and Semi-Finalist (2007) for the prestigious Lange-Tyler Prize at the Center for Documentary Studies, Duke University.
