I’m a current MFA candidate in poetry at Boston University. Some of the subjects I’m particularly interested in — as both a student and writer — include the ongoing construction of Asian-American identity; the relationship between the beauty industry and technologies of surveillance; and the way that our cultural understandings of female mysticism, sexuality, and “monstrosity” in the medieval world have continuing implications for our understanding of modernity.

I was also Bitch Media’s 2019 Writing Fellow in Pop-Culture Criticism, a 2015 Poetry Mentor for The Adroit Journal’s Summer Mentorship Program, and a 2013 National Student Poet representing the Southeast.
