JM's research focuses on ethnic, urban and mobility questions as they arise in Canada's relations with various Asian societies and communities. From an everyday life perspective, he examines the impact of port and airport infrastructure projects in Canadian gateway cities like Vancouver on local communities; he documents First Nations' diplomatic efforts in China, and he analyses the migration experiences of Chinese students to Canadian universities, notably as they pertain to their racialization in various Canadian communities. He is also interested in ethnic and community politics of Singapore and utilizes Southeast Asia in a comparison to Canadian cases and realities.
For the 2020-2021 academic year, JM is also the Chair of Glendon Faculty Council, the Associate Director of the York Centre for Asian Research, and the Coordinator for the Graduate Diploma in Asian Studies.
