About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of History, Politics, and Justice at Ohio Northern University. My research interests include the role of international human rights norms in influencing domestic political changes in East Asia and Latin America, effects of Asian migration on identity change in Peru, and Korean cultural influence in South America. Most recently, my field research has been on indigenous peoples’ rights in Peru, focusing on the case of forced sterilization from 1996 to 2001. Previously, I conducted field research in Peru, Brazil, and South Korea.
