Her experiences in such social conditions animate his research work which aims to address the complex relationship between queerness and nationhood. Particularly, she seeks to investigate the colonial and post-colonial conditions that shape articulations of nationalist claims within queer rights movements in the Philippines. His work converses with queer theories, contentious politics, and nationalism studies.
