About Me

I earned a PhD in US History from the University of Rochester and I am currently an ACLS Postdoctoral Fellow at the UC Davis Humanities Institute (DHI) and the Cultural Studies department. At the DHI, I am the public humanities coordinator and work with community partners. Previously, I held an ACLS Leading Edge Fellowship at One Fair Wage. My work centers on the working-class history and labor activism of South Asian immigrants in the US. In the classroom, I teach Asian American history, immigration, labor, social history, and methodologies of public engagement.
