Tim is pursuing an MSc in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. He holds a BSocSci in Social Work (Hons) from the National University of Singapore and is a Registered Social Worker with the Singapore Association of Social Workers. Prior to Oxford, he worked with individuals and families facing a wide range of difficulties. He was particularly struck in his work with low-income families and saw the potential that changes in policy would have in making help more effective and improving such families’ situations. This prompted him to further his studies with a focus on policy evaluation.
