Current Position: Assistant Professor of English and American Studies at Princeton University.

I am an inter­disciplinary scholar working at the inter­section of literature and economy, with a parti­cular focus on Asian American and Philippine Anglo­phone literature. Rea­ding across literary and economic history, I bring archival research to the study of the novel to develop a multi­scalar reading practice that ela­borates historical meaning contextually and in the form of the work itself.

At Princeton, I teach courses on “Asian American Literature,” “Global Novel,” “Model Minority Fictions,” “World Scale,” as well as a graduate critical theory seminar that introduces students to historical materialist methods for studying the economic mediations of culture.
