Who gets to say they make a living doing what they absolutely love? Me! I am fortunate enough to claim my career is about learning. Research for me means gathering knowledge, uncovering important truths, and framing it theoretically in a way that even non-academics can understand. Essentially, my work allows me to contribute to society through text.
My research interests span a broad variety of issues and topics: Asian American Studies, Vietnamese American Studies, Viet Nam Contemporary Issues, Fashionology, Spirit Realm, Transnationalism, Diasporic Studies, Alternative Economic Development, Southeast Asian American Contemporary History, Mixed Race Studies.
