Tender Evaluation




Graduate Teaching Assistant

London School of Economics and Political Science

Jan 2014 – Sep 2018 London
I held various teaching roles ranging from secondary teaching to marking for masters (ST416 Multilevel Modelling, ST421 Development in Statistical Methods) and undergraduate level courses (ST312 Applied Statistics Project) at the LSE. In addition, I also held assistant invigilator and examiner roles for both the LSE and the University of London International Examinations respectively.

Research Officer

Centre for Science and Technology, Research and Development (CSTRAD), Ministry of Defence

Oct 2010 – Present Brunei
I provided analytical insight into matters arising from the development and activities of strategic procurement projects for the Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF). This entailed market research, cost-benefit analyses, and writing technical reports. I was a project team member for the procurement and delivery of 12 Sikorsky S-70i helicopters (US$325M), and also the focal point for the development of tender evaluation criteria using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). After completing my PhD, I conducted various research into defence-related activities.
