DR. LEE AI LING
- Drama Department
Faculty of Creative Arts
Clarissa Ai Ling Lee is an artscience creator/researcher. She is equally interested in creative and academically rigorous interventions when it comes to interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaborations. Prior to starting her PhD, she had spent 6 years working in industry as well as in non-academic research while also pursuing her MA during that time. She had spent an even longer period freelancing in the creative and media industries, as a copywriter, arts/literary reviewer, columnist, and a features writer. She is always looking for ways to bore into the stubborn boundaries of teaching, learning, and thinking. She enjoys making pedagogical and informational videos, creative-philosophical guidebooks, and has run multiple workshops on artscience creation/speculative design. She is presently a visiting fellow with the ISEAS Yusof Ishak in Singapore under their Media, Technology, and Society programme, working on a project relating to political social media, race, and cybersecurity in Malaysia and Southeast Asia more broadly.
She has a BSc in Physics (Hons) and MA in English Literature from University Malaya. Her PhD in Literature; together with graduate certificates in the history and philosophy of science, technology and medicine; feminist studies; as well as information science, information studies; are from Duke University.
