Asia received a Ph.D. and M.A.  in Psychology (social), with a minor in Statistics, from the University of Chicago. She completed her undergraduate work at Carnegie Mellon University, receiving a B.S. in Psychology and a B.A. in Philosophy. She also earned a M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from FIU.

Most recently, Asia edited the book Navigating Your PhD: Challenges and Strategies for Thriving”. While most books on the grad school experience discuss academic milestones, our chapters address issues related to the work-home-life interface, being intended to facilitate a sense of belonging and identification, as well as provide evidence-based recommendations and resources. Chapters cover topics such as mental health in grad school, financial wellness and challenges, and learning academic norms as a working class student. Written by a diversity of current and recent Ph.D. students, every chapter takes into account how the social locations of the author(s) affected their experience.
