My research centers Asian American feminisms and Women of Color politics. My first book, Mothers Without Citizenship: Asian Immigrant Families and the Consequences of Welfare Reform examines the manifestation of the anti-immigrant movement of the eighties and nineties which culminated in sweeping changes to immigration and welfare policies. My scholarship also engages an Asian American feminist politics that is situated in Women of Color feminisms. I co-edited Asian American Feminisms and Women of Color Politics that seeks to understand the complexities and tensions of an Asian American feminist praxis in resistance to heteropatriarchal white supremacist violences that shape the lives and experiences of people of color.
