About Me

Hello! I am currently doing my PhD in History at the University of Hong Kong. My current research is on the historical animal geographies and the emergence of modern health in the Philippines during the colonial nineteenth and twentieth centuries. My works have appeared in Society & Animals and East Asian Science, Technology and Society: An International Journal.

I have researched on Philippine socio-legal history and have taught courses on Philippine history, historiography, and digital games in history. I finished my MA in History at the Ateneo de Manila University in 2015, and worked as an Instructor at the Department of History, Ateneo de Manila University. My full profile is found here.

This is my online journal for my research interests in history: zoonoses, biomedicine, and public health; medicine, science, and technology; human-animal relations; socio-legal histories; Spanish and American Empires. I often use the Philippines, my home country, and Southeast Asia as my geographic focus. Sometimes, I write about my own ramblings on teaching, research, and life. All notes and commentaries in this space are based on my work. I post in English, Filipino, and Spanish. I take full responsibility for what I write here. That said, give credit where credit is due.
