I specialize in American literature, Indigeneity, and Asian American literary studies, with broader interests in postcolonialism, transnationalism, refugee experiences, and American military history. I have taught courses in American literature, English literature, Asian American Studies, composition, and graphic novels, at California State University Northridge since 2007. My volunteer service promotes diversity and equity in virtual instruction through partnerships with CSUN’s College of Education online training series and my association with the Center for Digital Humanities. I was also a primary contributor for The Concise Oxford Companion to American Literature (Oxford University Press, 2021) and collaborated with the Autry Museum of the American West’s Hidden Histories exhibition, focusing on Indigenous histories and Japanese internment in Griffith Park. My doctoral dissertation explored literary representations of American Indian and Asian American erasure, resistance, captivity, displacement, and veteran experiences.
