I'm formerly a senior editor for Global Nation, PRI's The World's coverage of immigration in the US. I started at PRI as the social media manager, helping integrate engagement into our editorial process. I've spent most of my career writing long pieces (for magazines) and short posts (on Twitter) about politics and culture. I've reported from across Asia, including China, Thailand, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, and on diverse cultures across the US, from Southern California to Minneapolis, where I am currently based.

In the world of longer reads, I am the co-editor of Chinese Characters (UC Press, 2012) and seven years as a consulting editor to the Journal of Asian Studies.
