I'm Cheryl Yin, an anthropologist, linguist, and Southeast Asianist who primarily does research in Cambodia. I just completed my PhD in Linguistic Anthropology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. My dissertation "Khmer Honorifics: Re-emergence and Change after the Khmer Rouge" is based on 2 years of ethnographic fieldwork conducted in Cambodia. Currently, I am a UC Berkeley Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of South & Southeast Asian Studies.
