By interrogating archival materials, she examines the production of knowledge through structures of time and memory.

Her work has been shown at venues such as the International Center for Photography (NY), Art in General (NY), the Nasher Museum of Art (Durham, NC), The Kitchen (NY), Nhà Sàn (Hanoi), the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin, Ireland), Leslie Tonkonow Gallery (NY), the Rubber Factory (NY), the Phillips Collection (Washington D.C.) and the Minneapolis Institute of Art (MN). She was included in the New Orleans triennial Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp in 2017-2018. Her collaborative work with Hương Ngô was exhibited in Being: New Photography 2018 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Her work has been reviewed in Artforum, The New Yorker, the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Hyperallergic, among others.
