I am currently working on 4 major projects:
1. My book manuscript, Prophylactic Fictions: Immunity and Biosecurity, traces the British literary and cultural history of immunity in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in relation to conceptions of national security and the rise of the security state. Drawing on approaches from the history of medicine, disability studies, and literary studies, my project considers how transformations in and representations of preventative medicine underpin contemporary debates about biosecurity and vaccination.
2. A collaborative project, Curvature, with Den Sweeney, a Philadelphia-based photographer. This creative endeavor explores my scoliosis-related disability through photography and poetry. Images from this project have been shown at the VSA Massachusetts Disability and Intersectionality art exhibit and many of the project's poems have been widely published.
3. A collection of poetry and short fiction entitled Listening to Incense. This volume is a meditation on the experience of depression, intergenerational trauma, and Chinese masculinity in my family.
4. An untitled series of charcoal portraits focused on motion and shadow tentatively titled Gestures.
