About Me

I am a history PhD student at Harvard University, studying the history of the United States in the Pacific, with specific attention to Guam and the Philippines. I am writing my dissertation on the relationship between Filipino migration and indigenous Chamorro self-determination on Guam in the 20th century. I examine the development and change over time of the intimate connections between militarization, settler colonialism, racial capitalism, and indigeneity in United States Pacific empire.
