My research focuses on the aftermath of mass violence through the lenses of social memory, morality, the imagination, trust, memorialization, and everyday practices. I have conducted extensive research in Cambodia with some of this research resulting in my first book, Forest of Struggle: Moralities of Remembrance in Upland Cambodia tracks the recovery of a village community in Cambodia’s southwest, a site that was a Khmer Rouge base and battleground for nearly thirty years. I am currently in the process of publishing a co-edited volume about social repair in the aftermath of mass violence through the conceptual practices of imagination, resilience, and empathy. This volume is transdisciplinary and international in scope. I am also currently working on projects on the topics of liberalism, social change, virtual mediums of memory, impacts of digital mediums on mass violence and its aftermaths, and material culture and memory I hold am an adjunct research associate at Columbia University’s Weatherhead Center for East Asian Studies, and hold affiliations with the Council for Southeast Asian Studies at Yale University and the Southeast Asia Program at Cornell University. I serve as a board member for the Southeast Asian Council (SEAC) and the Center for Khmer Studies (CKS).
