Before I conducted my PhD research in modern Chinese history at King’s College London, I had studied international politics at Peking University, China and Waseda University, Japan and then obtained my MSc in international relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Between 2014 and 2016, I worked as a research associate at the University of Cologne, Germany and taught four courses in modern Chinese history. I joined the University of Exeter in September 2016.

My research interests primarily lie in the social and political history of the Second Sino-Japanese War and the extended civil conflicts in the Republican Era, and the history of Chinese political networks, societies and groups in the late nineteenth century and the twentieth century. I am interested more widely in Chinese intellectual and gender histories, in particular the circulation of ideas and movements in a global context.
