Position title: TA: History 244 with Professor Cullinane
I am a professional film editor, a part-time journalist, and an academic researcher examining 20th- and 21st- century economic and political history in Southeast Asia. My dissertation focuses on the economic history of Davao City, Philippines, since the 1970s.
Before starting at UW-Madison in 2018, I worked as an editor for several award-winning documentary and fiction films in New York City and the Philippines.
Since 2019, I have worked part-time as a writer and co-host for the Sunday radio newscast “World View” on Madison’s WORT 89.9FM. Since spring 2020, I’ve also worked as the Data and Research Editor for the Granite State News Collaborative, a network of 18 news and community organizations in my home state of New Hampshire.
