I am an Assistant Professor at UC Irvine in the departments of English, Asian American Studies, and East Asian Studies, and a senior editor at Hyphen magazine, which I also co-founded.

My research and writing focus on 20/21st c. Anglophone and Asian/American cultural production, speculative fiction, and racial form. I received my PhD in English literature from UC Berkeley in 2016, and was formerly a UC Chancellor’s postdoctoral fellow in the English department at UC Riverside.

In addition to Hyphen, my writing has appeared or is forthcoming in American Literary History, American Quarterly, College Literature, the Journal of Asian American Studies, the Journal of Transnational American Studies, Post45, Public BooksThe New InquiryAmerican Literary History: Forum, and other venues.

I am currently working on a book, tentatively titled Principles of Selection: Asian American Fiction after 1965, about post-1965 Asian/American fiction as an articulation of US-Asia political economy.
