I am currently a Lecturer in Sociology and Global Studies at the National University of Singapore. I primarily teach courses on globalization, cultural studies and popular culture, and the humanities. 

From 2014 to 2016 I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Global Studies at the National University of Singapore. In 2012, I was a Visiting Scholar with the Mobilities, Borders, and Identity Research Group and the Department of Geography at the University of Oulu, Finland.

I have published in Security JournalBehemoth: A Journal on Civilization, and the Blackwell Encyclopedia of Postcolonial Studies, and have reviewed books for Dialogues in Human Geography, Antipode: A Radical Journal of Geography, and Foucault Studies

I am a graduate of the Ohio State University Department of Comparative Studies (2014). I also have degrees from Miami University (MSc, College Student Personnel) and Gonzaga University (BA, History).

I enjoy photography and travel. All photographs on the site are mine (with just a few exceptions, such as film screenshots).

I blog infrequently at fabricating worlds
