about

I am an artist and scholar engaged in the poetics and technologies of difference. My academic writing has been published in publications such as Barnard Scholar Feminist OnlineAmerasia, Cinema Journal, and GLQ. As a poet, I am the author of Radio Heart; or How Robots Fall Out of Love, and the recipient of poetry fellowships from the Squaw Valley Poetry Workshop, Les Figues Press, the Science Fiction Poetry Association, and Kundiman. As a new media artist, my project The Kimchi Poetry Machine was selected to exhibit at the Electronic Literature Collection Volume 3, and in 2014, I was awarded the Chancellor’s Award for Public Service and honorable mention for the Yamashita Prize for Social Change for my collaborative feminist digital storytelling work in the San Francisco Jail. Currently, I am a visiting assistant professor in the Women’s and Gender Studies department, and faculty affiliate in New Media and Culture at the University of Oregon. In 2014, I earned my Ph.D. in ethnic and new media studies from the University of California, Berkeley.
