Her work draws from a unique combination of methods including ethnography, participatory mapping, archival research, virtual reality, and oral history interviews with tenants, community organizers, restaurant and garment workers, small businesses, public health workers, and local artists. Her research has been appeared in Urban Affairs Review, Asian American Policy Review, Push/Pulland a variety of books, journals, anthologies, and podcasts.
