Hi there! I am a political scientist specializing in the study of political and social change in the Philippines and Southeast Asia. In my role as President and Chief Executive Officer of WR NUMERO RESEARCH, my mission is to revolutionize public opinion research in the Philippines and the Asia-Pacific. At WRN, I equip leaders and organizations with accurate data, accessible evidence, and actionable insights so they can make a difference in the communities they work in.

I am also Assistant Professorial Lecturer in the Department of Political Science and Development Studies at De La Salle University (DLSU), Affiliate Faculty in the DLSU Dr. Andrew L. Tan Data Science Institute, and PhD candidate in the Department of Political and Social Change at the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs at The Australian National University.

My academic work focuses on examining the contemporary troubles challenging fragile democracies in Southeast Asia including democratic decline, disinformation, and populism. I am a regular recipient of research grants and I have published more than a dozen book chapters, journal articles, and public reports. I also actively contribute to public scholarship through my blog, op-eds, and regular interviews with the media.

Aside from my professional roles, I take pride in my active contributions to public scholarship through my op-eds and regular interviews with the media.
