Personal Statement:

My current projects include a transnational history of marriage “markets” largely focused on mail-order brides from Southeast Asia, as well as an examination of imperialism/colonialism’s impact on Vietnamese cuisine and how it influences the diaspora.

Aside from the time dedicated to pursuing a PhD, I enjoy spending my time with a Diet Coke, exploring local businesses for Yelp reviews, singing along to kpop (though I don’t speak Korean), and occasionally taking a *not staged* Instagram post.
