About Me

A headshot of a biracial, mostly Asian-appearing woman with a bob hairstyle and fuchsia-colored lipstick

I'm an interdisciplinary scholar of media, race, and visual culture.   What fascinates me most is how institutions and global power players have historically attempted to rationalize and quantify our sensory experiences—and even our very conceptions of self—through a wide range of both analog and digital technologies. My current book project, Seeing by Numbers, tells the story of how something as subjective and ephemeral as color came to be seen as standardized. 

Since receiving my PhD in Film & Media from UC Berkeley in 2022, I've been a DISCO Network Postdoctoral Research Fellow housed in the University of Michigan's Digital Studies Institute.
