DPhil in Politics

My research interests broadly revolve around feminist philosophy, anti-carceralism, and critical theories of state power. At the moment, I am working on a project about prison abolition which proposes a framework for how feminists ought to think about the choice between state and community when it comes to harm redress and safety.

My doctoral work focuses on the feminists of the Asian American Movement. Relying on archival work and interviews, I push against the notion that there has never been a distinct Asian American feminism and draw out the Movement's theoretical contributions for philosophies of race, work, and gender.

I completed my MPhil in Political Theory with Distinction at The Queen's College, Oxford in 2023. I graduated summa cum laude from Columbia University with a Bachelor's in Philosophy, and also hold a Bachelor's in Social Science from Sciences Po Paris Campus de Menton.
