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, Marxism, and aesthetic theory.
My article, “Cold War Remittance Economy”︎ [PDF] American 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."
In January 2023, I was elected Delegate Representative (2023–26) for Literary Theory and Method at the Modern Language Association.
