Research Interests:

My research focuses on examining how female images were produced and shaped by the sense of national instability in twelfth-century China. Before joining the University of Oxford in 2019, I received a BA in Chinese Language and Literature and an MPhil in Gender Studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. My main research interests lie in the following areas: gender history, Chinese language and literature. I am also interested in world history, culinary cultures, material cultures and music, and enjoy travelling.
