Ha-My Nguyen or My Nguyen (pronounced "Me" Nguyen) is deeply passionate about exploring the intersection of Sociology and Economics. Specifically, she is interested in the field of Economic Sociology, with a focus on financial deal-making, capitalism, social networking, and transnational political-economic identities. My is particularly interested in the power dynamics and complexity of the transnational and global economic environment and the relationship between different market and political actors in shaping and maintaining the global economy. She advocates for the understanding of different global markets and economic systems, especially underdeveloped, developing, and emerging markets, through a racial, historical, and post-colonial lens. Through her research projects, My aims to contribute to the literature of global capitalism and transnational and global sociology by identifying the actors and players of the economy and how they shape, reshape, maintain, and navigate the ever-changing, developing, and shifting nature of global markets and globalization.

My also acknowledges the importance of teaching and providing a safe space for learning. She developed her teaching philosophy from the position of a marginalized learner and scholar. My encourages and invites deep and meaningful interaction and engagement in her teaching approach. She aims to create safe environments and spaces for people to share their experiences and advocates for creating and maintaining collaborative and supportive communities.
