Biography

I am studying East Asian history with a focus on China and Tibet during the Yuan-Ming transition. I am interested in how the Ming imperial project affected the ethnic and gender identities of people on its borderlands, as well as the legacy of the Mongol-Yuan’s system of ethnic hierarchy.

Currently on leave for language study at National Taiwan University
