Personal Statement:

Broadly, my research explores the racialization of Asian diasporas across the Anglophone transpacific settler colonies—CANZUS (Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States)—since the mid-nineteenth century. My particular point of departure is the relationship between “Asian Australia” and “Asian America,” a consideration of which challenges and expands the purported transnational bounds of Asian American theory. I am a co-convenor of the Asian/American Studies Collective at UCSB.
