About

Me speaking at NightSchoolLA

My introduction to digital humanities and VozMob at the Night School LA. Read more about that group talk at my post about it here.

I am the Digital Scholar at Whittier College’s Digital Liberal Arts center, where I also teach courses in media and digital studies. I was 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 Global South, The Journal of e-Media Studies, Debates in the Digital Humanities 2016, and Humanities and the Digital (MIT Press). I have also previously published on comics in the Asian American literature class. I’m a steering committee member of HASTAC and FemTechNet, and as a founding member of the #transformDH collective which seeks to incorporate critical cultural studies and social justice work into broad digital activities.
