Bio & Research Interests

My interdisciplinary research examines the cultural, economic, and migratory circuits between South Korea, the U.S. and Mexico, with a particular focus on how religion produces and sustains diasporic networks. Before coming to UC Berkeley, I graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.A. in English Literature & American Studies.
