My broad area of research interest and expertise is interdisciplinary focusing on the use of emerging digital technology for the betterment of society, especially in the context of public sector. This is due to my 15 years’ experience working on different roles in one of the leading government agencies in Malaysia, including as the Assistant Director of Talent Management in Human Resource Division and the Chief Assistant Director of Business Development Unit in Transportation Industry Division. My current and evolving research interests include exploring the role of actors and structures in the adoption of digital-led transformation in the context of public service, implication of disruptive technology and circular economy on talent management, the ethics of artificial intelligence in the HRM context and other public sector innovation and transformation in general.
