I am a historian of the 20th-century transnational US, specializing in gender and US empire in the Philippines. My research and teaching center on feminist approaches to US militarism, Asian American history, Philippine and Filipinx studies, and the global study of gender and sexuality. In August 2020, I received my PhD in history as well as a graduate certificate in Women's Studies from the University of Michigan.
Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies at the University of Michigan. This academic year (2020-2021) I am teaching courses on gender and US militarism as well as Asian American history. In addition, I am working on revising my dissertation into a book and publishing an academic article.
