Dr Anju Mary Paul is an international migration scholar with a research focus on migration to, from, and within Asia. Dr Paul graduated from the University of Michigan in 2012 with a joint PhD in Sociology and Public Policy. Her first book, Multinational Maids (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming 2017) explores the adoption of “stepwise” labor migration patterns by Filipino and Indonesian migrant domestic workers as they attempt to navigate the global labor market for domestic work to better their living and working conditions. Her second (edited) book, Local Encounters in a Global City (Ethos Books, forthcoming 2017), is an anthology of essays by 15 of her Yale-NUS students exploring different spaces of globalization in Singapore. While Dr Paul continues to study migrant domestic work, her most current project looks at migration decision-making among Asian bioscientists.
