Ph.D Candidate, Sociology

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley, working at the interface of migration, gender, and development. My dissertation uses ethnographic methods to examine Indonesian guest workers’ incorporation into Asia’s postindustrial countries. I compare the migration experiences of women domestic workers and factory operators. To understand how brokers and states construct transnational labor markets in gendered ways, I conducted 22 months of participant observation in four Indonesian recruitment agencies and more than 120 interviews with government officials, employment agencies, prospective migrants, and NGOs in Indonesia, Taiwan, and Singapore.
