I am an Assistant Professor of English and American Studies at Princeton University, where I also serve as an executive committee member of the Program in Media and Modernity. In 2023, I was named Laurance S. Rockefeller University Preceptor for Princeton’s Center for Human Values. My courses include “Asian American Literature,” “Global Novel,” “Model Minority Fictions,” and “World Scale.” I also teach graduate seminars on racial capitalism and Marxist aesthetic theory.

My article, “Cold War Remittance Economy”︎ [PDFAmerican Quar­terly 73.3 (2021), won the 1921 Best Essay Prize, which is an­nually awarded by the Advisory Council of the American Lite­rature Society for "the best article in any field of American literature."

Beyond Princeton, I was elected Delegate Representative (2023–26) for Literary Theory and Method at the Modern Language Association. For the Association for Asian American Studies, I served as juror member for the 2024 Asian American Fiction Award. I’m also on the steering committee for the 2024-2025 Mellon Foundation Sawyer Seminar on "Transpacific Thought and the Problem of Asia,” directed by Kandice Chuh and Thuy Linh Nguyen Tu.
