Paul is a PhD student focusing on the twentieth-century history of the United States. His research explores intersections of environmental, social, and cultural trajectories in twentieth-century California as part of the wider Pacific world. Current research projects include tracing intertwined developments in agricultural labor, especially floriculture and viticulture, and working-class communities of color, in particular Asian American and Asian migrant communities, within early twentieth-century California. Paul’s favorite four-pawed reading and writing companions are his dogs, Athena and Frankie.
