Her scholarship has been supported by institutions such as the NEH, Rockefeller, UCLA Global Studies Program, Fulbright, and the Cornell Society for the Humanities. She recently co-edited a volume on postcolonial ecologies and is currently writing a manuscript on environmentalism, energy, militarism and waste. In 2011 she co-organized the Legacies of Pacific Island Militarization workshop and in 2010 the Globalized Islands: Contemporary Literature & the Transnational Encounter conference. In 2009 she was one of the departmental co-organizers of the Mellon Foundation’s Cultural Pre-history of Environmentalism Project. She teaches postcolonial literature courses on the environment, globalization, the politics of food, women’s writing and migration, and Pacific Island literature.
