For most of her career, she has specialised in covering Singapore politics and policies, journalism beats that have taken her around the island and the world, including to international courts in Hamburg and the Hague for two historic cases in which Singapore went up against Malaysia over reclamation and Pedra Branca.
In her current job, she edits the paper's Opinion pages. She also writes a column in the Sunday edition of the paper.
