In her research, Busarin Lertchavalitsakul focuses on cross-border flows in one of Asia's most dynamic borderlands, between Myanmar's southern Shan State and northwest Thailand. She carries out ethnographic fieldwork aimed at illuminating the intersection of cross-border mobility and border control within the highly complex interactions of various state and state-like actors.
