She is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Information, Technology, and Public Life in the School of Information and Library Sciences at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She holds a PhD in Media, Culture, and Communication from New York University. Her current project interrogates the concept of ‘solidarity’ across media objects and platforms and demonstrates how technologies enhance and foreclose possibilities for political organization across uneven racial and class differences.

She is also a co-founder of the Asian American Feminist Collective.
