My previous research focused on representations of masculinity and rebellion in post-1989 Chinese fiction.
My current project considers the connection between literature and mobility in China since 1992. I explore how travel is represented in post-reform texts, and how the field itself is shaped by new possibilities of movement.
I completed my PhD at SOAS, University of London, having obtained an MA from SOAS, and an MPhil and BA from Oxford.
From 2015-2017 I was a Chiang Ching-Kuo Postdoctoral Fellow, affiliated with the University of Oxford China Centre.
I have taught classes in modern Chinese literature, modern Chinese film, comparative literature, and translation at undergraduate and graduate levels.
