Office: HSSB 2215
Office Hours: (W15): M, 4:00-6:00pm
My research focus is on how representations of non-heteronormative behaviors have changed through time in South Korea, China and Japan.
As an undergraduate at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA, our final thesis essay was an open topic. As an active member of the LGBT student organization on-campus I had used many other self-directed assignments to do similar research. All of my previous work culminated in a 53-page essay that was chosen as one of the presentations at the LMU Undergraduate Research Symposium.
