My research centers around Teno-Em, a generic version of PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) manufactured by the Thai Government Pharmaceutical Organization (GPO). With this research, I am interested in entanglements between the contingencies of pharmaceutical infrastructures, sexual health campaigns, sexual rights movements, and new forms of sexual subjectivity.
Before starting this project at Rice, I completed a master’s degree in anthropology at National Taiwan University, where my research focused on sexual politics in Taiwan and Tongzhi activist engagements with discourses of national multiculturalism. This project was the culminating result of eighteen months of fieldwork with the Taiwan Tongzhi Hotline Association, where I received training as a volunteer and participated in a variety of public engagements.
Prior to moving to Taiwan, I earned a BA from The George Washington University, where I double-majored in International Development and Anthropology.
