I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Malaysia Institute of the School of Culture, History & Language at the Australian National University. Prior to this, I worked in Taiwan and Malaysia as a researcher, translator, editor and journalist. I have a broad interest ranging from Asian history, movements and literature in the 20th century to contemporary politics and society, on which I adopt a decolonial lens to examine the formation of the subjectivity of individuals and modern nations. At the moment, I focus specifically on Sinophone/Chinese Malaysian literature, gender and leftist history in the region and the shadow of the Cold War.
