I am the Digital Scholar at Whittier College’s Digital Liberal Arts center, and a former Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities and Visiting Assistant Professor of Asian American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. My research interests include the literature and media of migration and labor, Asian American studies, globalization and neoliberalism, postcolonial studies, and transnationalism. I’m especially invested in the ways gender, race, class, and nationality affect how the temporary and the precarious is experienced.
My work appears in The Journal of e-Media Studies, and is forthcoming in Ada: A Journal of Gender, New Media, and Technology, and Humanities and the Digital (MIT Press). I have previously published on comics in the Asian American literature class. I’m also active in HASTAC, FemTechNet, and as a founding member of the #transformDH collective which seeks to incorporate critical cultural studies and social justice work into diverse digital humanities activities.
