Her research interest in comparative literature has led her to further focus on the relationship of critical theory to an understanding of contemporary Thai cultural studies. She is also the editor of South East Asia Research.

Peter A. Jackson is Senior Fellow in Thai History at the Australian National University in Canberra, where he specializes in the histories of Buddhism, gender, sexuality, and globalization in modern Thailand.
