I am an Assistant Professor of English and American Studies and an associate faculty member of the Program in Media and Modernity at Princeton University. 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”︎ American Quar­terly 73.3 (2021), received the 1921 Best Essay Prize, which is an­nually awarded by the American Lite­rature Society for "the best article in any field of American literature."

In January 2023, I was elected Delegate Representative (2023–26) for Literary Criticism—Theory and Method at the Modern Language Association.
