Research Interests

Social and cultural history of modern Indonesia and maritime Southeast Asia, historiography and the intersections of history and anthropology

Current Research

My research examines the constitution of maritime worlds, especially the spatial dimensions of the maritime, through the analysis of material practices, forms of representation and institutional structures. In my forthcoming book, Intertidal History, I draw on Southeast Asian and early modern European sources to show the vital roles that maritime people played in histories that unfolded along and between the region’s littoral zones.
