Phan, who is an expert in survey research, public opinion, and data science. presented alongside other leading political scientists on a panel on Indigeneity, Nativity, and Boundaries of Exclusion. Her paper, "The Political Legacy of US Occupation on "Native Hawaiian" Identity," finds that Native Hawaiians who had access to the Hawaiian language in schools are more likely to have a deep sense of belonging to their Hawaiian group. In contrast, she also finds that having access to the Hawaiian language does not predict whether Native Hawaiians have a deep sense of belonging to America.
