I am interested in vernacular languages and their creative representation in literature, especially in the context of Southeast Asia and as a response to censorship. I am currently focusing on multilingual Singaporean literature that feature non-Mandarin Sinitic languages and Singlish (Colloquial Singapore English), and will be identifying and tracing these literary and linguistic developments alongside Singapore's language policies from the 1900s to the present day. I also have an interest in translation studies and popular culture studies in Asia.  

Areas of Specialization:

Singapore Literature, Southeast Asian Studies, Translation Studies, Sinophone Studies
