Academic Interests

I have a broad spectrum of research interests in Chinese Studies, ranging from the language, art, cultural and intellectual history of early China, to the economic history of Chinese diaspora from a regional and global perspective.


Ongoing Research Project

My PhD dissertation investigates the role of Cantonese diaspora in the capital accumulation in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century East Asia. This project aims to contribute to the European Research Council-funded interdisciplinary project "Brokering China’s Extraversion: An Ethnographic Analysis of Transnational Arbitration" from a historical dimension.
