With an engineering degree from the Philippines, Teofilo Daquila commenced his graduate studies in economics at the University of the Philippines and obtained his MA degree from the Katholieke Universiteit te Leuven in 1983. From a beautiful and historical university town of Leuven in Belgium, he proceeded to Australia in June 1984 and obtained his PhD degree from the Australian National University in July 1988. After a 3-month stint at ISEAS, he joined the NUS Department of Economics from August 1988 to May 1993. But the Land Down Under pulled him once again where he taught economics courses at Deakin University and the University of Melbourne. For family reasons, he moved back to Singapore and joined the Department of Southeast Asian Studies since December 1995. He has had visiting appointments at El Colegio de Mexico, George Washington University, Chulalongkorn University, Nordic Institute of Asian Studies, Ludwig-Maximilians Universitat Muchen, the Australian National University, and Korea University.
His current research interests include Southeast Asia's economic development, ASEAN economic regionalism, the internationalisation of higher education, and the teaching of economics and business with reference to Southeast/Northeast Asia.
