Ada Quek Jing Yi

Academic Qualifications

Master of Arts (Honours) in Comparative Literature and International Relations, University of St. Andrews


Ada's background in international relations and comparative literature provides her with a multi-theoretical lens to critically analyse environmental and social issues. She’s an advocate of nature-based solutions, social justice, and policy transformation. She hopes to help the Centre by amplifying its research and solutions to the government, public, and private sectors, and translating them into practical actions.

Ada is currently part of the Fundraising and Partnerships teams. She helps with fundraising the Centre's and NUS' Faculty of Science's various research and outreach needs, as well as facilitates partnerships with industry stakeholders, public sectors, and private organisations. Previously assisting with the Centre's Outreach & Communications programmes, Ada strongly believes in an all-of-society approach to knock at the wicked problem of climate change.
