After 12 years of private Catholic education in the Philippines and the United States, I went to public higher education at UCLA and received all my advance degrees, including the doctorate in history, at this fabulous institution. I came to Illinois ten years ago to join the history department full time while also being among the first faculty to constitute the Asian American Studies program. I currently also have an affiliation with the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.
