About Me

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Gettysburg College. From 2011-2015, I was an Assistant Professor in the Women's and Gender Studies Department at Keene State College. I hold a Ph.D. in the History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies from the University of California at Santa Cruz.



My Research and Teaching

My research and teaching explore how gender and queer sexuality inform notions of nation, diaspora, and transnational belonging in a contemporary context of globalization. My research, writing, and teaching encompass a range of fields, including queer studies, feminist theory, transnational feminisms, women of color feminisms, diaspora studies, ethnic studies, and Asian American/Filipina/o American studies.  My writing has been published in Women and Performance: A Journal of Feminist Theory, the Review of Women's Studies, and the International Feminist Journal of Politics.  My book, The Global Filipina Body: Gendered and Sexual Nationalisms in the Filipino Diaspora, is under advance contract with the University of Illinois Press.
