I am a scholar, writer, artist, nerd, gamer, soccer fan, and community organizer. While I share strong political investments in all these worlds, I also have differently complicated relationships to all those labels, even as I claim them for myself. 

More formally, I received my B.A. in English Literature modified with Women's, Gender, and Sexuality studies with a minor in Sociology at Dartmouth College. I am currently a PhD Student in Ethnic Studies at UC San Diego, where I specialize in queer/feminist science and technology studies, performance studies, and transpacific Asian/American studies. I am also a community organizer with Viet Unity-Southern California, an organization of Vietnamese activists committed to the struggle for racial and gender justice, global peace, and self-determination.
