AAS Consultant—Outreach and Strategic Initiatives
I joined AAS in May 2017 and my role involves developing new strategic initiatives and events, as well as relations with funders. Prior to joining the AAS, I was Executive Director at the Center for Khmer Studies, an American overseas research center based in Cambodia, designing and running programs focused on the history, politics, and culture of Cambodia and neighboring countries in Southeast Asia. My experience in Cambodia also includes overseeing landmine clearance programs and a period living in a remote village in the northeast of the country researching the impacts of the Indochina War on ethnic minority communities. This formed the basis for my PhD at Cambridge University. In addition to my interest in Asian art history and material culture, my favorite hobby is the practice ofMuay Thai, or Thai boxing.
