Research Areas:

Asian American radicalism, Ethnic Literature, The Post-Modern Novel

Research Interests:

My research interests gravitate towards contemporary Asian American cultural production, but I continue to be captivated by the historicality, sociality, and spatiality of racialized subject and culture formation in 19th and 20th century America. I am currently researching on the ways in which Asian American writers after Japanese American internment have deployed and disarticulated the notion and trope of home.
