Park's research and teaching interests are Latin American literature/culture and Philippine literature in Spanish and English from the twentieth century. She focuses on exile writers, Orientalism, Asian diasporas, transpacific studies, and sound studies. Her articles have been published in Hispanic Review, HispanófilaSymplokeJournal of Spanish Cultural StudiesComparative Literature and CultureTransmodernityIberoromania, and Revista Filipina. She also has book chapters on Cuban writers Severo Sarduy and Daína Chaviano in the edited volumes TransLatin Joyce: Global Transmissions in Ibero-American Literature (2014) and Critical Insights: Contemporary Latin American Fiction (2017). Park's current book project reexamines the geographically bound and politically charged definitions of Hispanidad and Latinidad by analyzing the work of twentieth-century Filipino and Latin American writers, cultural critics, and diplomats.
