(This is a pinned “About” post. Scroll down for blog updates.)
I am a Malaysian PhD student in Education at the University of Cambridge. My thesis research looks at teacher accountability policy and sociocultural context across countries.
Prior to starting the PhD in 2016, I spent two years teaching English in a high-need secondary school. I have also worked on a few research projects, including a guide to help Malaysian education researchers work with TIMSS and PISA microdata.

If you’re wondering how to pronounce my given name, Yue-Yi, it’s 悦义. If, like me, you can’t read Mandarin, you can approximate my name by saying the acronym for the United Arab Emirates – U.A.E.
