I am an Assistant Professor of English and American Studies at Princeton University, where I teach courses on 20th and 21st century global Anglophone and Asian American literature. I joined Princeton in 2018, the inaugural year of the Certificate Program in Asian American Studies.

In Jan 2022, my article, “Cold War Remittance Economy,” American Quarterly 73.3 (2021), received the 1921 Best Essay Prize. The 1921 Prize is annually awarded by the Advisory Council of the American Literature Society for "the best article in any field of American literature."

I am also an Elected Delegate (2020-2023) for the CLCS Southeast Asian and Southeast Asian Diasporic at the Modern Language Association.
