I am currently Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Western Washington University Bellingham WA. As a cultural and medical anthropologist with a background in East Asian studies, Women-Gender studies, and Public Health, I bring a rich interdisciplinarity to my scholarship and to my teaching. After receiving my doctorate in Anthropology from Stanford University in 2014, I conducted postdoctoral research at Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit MI, and then at the University of South Carolina School of Public Health, Columbia SC, where I worked with an interdisciplinary team of scholars developing research in labor migration, marginalized/disadvantaged women, social stigma, HIV/AIDS, and social networks.
