Adrian Wan

Senior Policy and Advocacy Manager


I'm a Senior Manager, Policy & Advocacy at the Internet Society. I focus on issues affecting the Internet’s openness, connectivity, trustworthiness, and security, with an emphasis on Asia-Pacific. I lead the global Community Networks project.

A former business and technology journalist with the South China Morning Post based in Hong Kong and Beijing, I found interest in technology policy and engagement in Asia-Pacific, having worked in organizations including the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), Microsoft, and Huawei.

I hold a Master’s in Public Policy at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore, specializing in economic policy and analysis. I'm fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin, and have a working knowledge of French and Vietnamese. 

I fell in love with Vietnam (and its coffee) during an internship in Ho Chi Minh City when I was a student and continue to learn the language. I'm based in Singapore.
