My research explores the transnational genealogies and consequences of Asian racial form within the Anglophone settler colonies of the transpacific—the so-called “CANZUS” countries (Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S.)—with a particular focus on “Asian Australia.” Based in the period from the 1960s (the end of immigration exclusion) to the present, my work attempts to understand Asian racialization within a broader context of Cold War geopolitics and linked Anglophone and Asian (sub-)imperialism in the Asia Pacific. 

I am a co-convenor of the Asian/American Studies Collective at UCSB which coordinates interdisciplinary programming for graduate students working in Asian American studies.
