He is an experienced coordinator of international NGO programs and has served peacebuilding and development projects across the Indo-Pacific region. Most recently, he helped pioneer backchannel dialogue platforms among Chinese and South Asian stakeholders on the critical issues of regional water insecurity and environmental degradation.
