Personal profile


The concerns of Isa's current scholarship revolve around historicizing and interpreting storm tropes in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century Tagalog literature, to analyze the ways in which they inform contemporary stances regarding climate and its many catastrophic iterations in the Philippines. She was a Fellow at the National University of Singapore's Asian Graduate Student Fellowship in 2016, and has presented her work at conferences hosted by the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, the National University of Singapore, and Nanyang Technological University. She has also published with institutions and journals such as eTropic, Katipunan, and the University of the Philippines’ Institute of Creative Writing.
