My research interests pertains to the development and distribution of translated scientific nomenclature (with heavy emphasis on biochemistry fields) in China from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth century. I am building on work already done during my master’s degree and expanding by examining the relationship between scientists, state-sponsored modernity initiatives, and the materials used in education.
