Together with a multi-disciplinary team, Head of HASS Professor Lim Sun Sun will be one of the co-Principal Investigators for an $8.5 million Social Science Research Council Grant study titled Building Capacity in Singapore’s Population: Testing Innovations in Human Development. Led by Professor Jean Yeung of the National University of Singapore’s Centre for Family and Population Research, the project looks at 5,000 families with children aged six and younger, and studies how factors such as early childcare, preschool attendance, the use of technology and family stress, can shape child development and family resilience. Professor Lim will be studying the use of technology in these young families, the mediation strategies adopted by parents and the digital literacy challenges they encounter.
