Hou, Mike M. Z.
Mike is keenly interested in social and political psychology, specifically in the domains of intergroup relations, immigration, and national identity. Before pursuing his PhD, Mike was a Naval Combat Officer in the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN), where he was busy defending the country through strategic policy planning at RSN HQ, as well as leading frontline operations on a state-of-the-art frigate. In his free time, Mike enjoys judo practice and also teaches Japanese to anyone who is interested. His favorite pastime is to get high on some bi-ru at izakayas.
