History…is not a peacefully flowing river, but made up of different moments, separated by tumultuous rapids – Samir Amin  


I am an aspiring sociologist interested in the economic history of southeast Asia, the political economy of natural resources, and the hegemonic assent of China. I am interested in working with world systems and comparative historical methods. My current project is a comparative historical analysis of two Southeast Asian national oil companies – Petronas (Malaysia) and Pertamina (Indonesia). I publish frequently in various critical outlets, and am co-founder of the UCI radical reading collective.
