My field research deals with the changing political and cultural alignments of Shan insurgents, affiliates, and migrants in Mainland Southeast Asia. I have carried out ethnographic work in Burma/Myanmar, Thailand, and border areas on uses and appropriations of popular culture narratives by politicized Shans, and in so doing, taken interest in popular genres in Burma as well as the history of Burmese cinema and its relationship with social life in general.
My current research project is on the politics and power relations (literally and figuratively) regarding a proposed dam construction on the Salween River.
