（1） 地緣政治下的跨媒介研究：目前進行中的專書 Speculative Statecraft: Logistical Media and the Culture of Chinese Cold War 聚焦於中港臺三地在冷戰軍事動員及後備體系下，影音媒介與物質環境間的感官連結。我將「物流/後勤」這一概念做歷史與美學的脈絡化，從軍事、農業、運輸、建築等面向探討政治宣傳媒介（電影、攝影、報刊圖像等）如何形塑閱聽者對於速度、連結、循環、網絡的想像。
（2） 環境、建築與基礎設施的「文化-技術」研究：過往幾年我進行了一系列關於都市建築與基礎設施的的研究書寫。已發表或進行中之計畫包括：台北殖民時期陶瓷建材與建築官僚的色彩論述 ; 戰後台灣文學對美援基礎設施之再現；東亞現代主義建築與政治宣傳敘事。這些計畫都指向環境、敘事、技術三者間的關係，也延續我對於「基礎設施的政治與詩學」 （the politics and aesthetics of infrastructure）的關注。
