Born and raised in China, I have been trained as a historian in both British and Chinese academia. I studied in Peking University before I came to the UK in 2009. I completed my PhD in University of Edinburgh in 2013. I was previously a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in University of Sussex and then in the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH), University of Edinburgh. I joined the University of Exeter in 2015.

I am interested in the encounters between the British and Chinese empires in early processes of global interconnectedness, especially the mutual understandings and misunderstandings between Britain and China from the late eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth century.

I have published peer-reviewed articles in both English and Chinese journals.
