My work is positioned at the intersection of migration studies and urban studies. I am also interested in postcolonial approaches to these fields. My research is fundamentally motivated by the desire to understand the causes, processes, and consequences of structural and urban inequalities (especially in Southeast Asian and East Asian contexts), and how people cope individually and collectively under such conditions – with a particular focus on mobilities. My work pays particular attention to how the historical connects to the present.
