I received my Ph.D. and M.A. in Chinese Literature from the University of Hong Kong and Fudan University, respectively. I was also trained at Harvard University as a Harvard-Yenching Visiting Fellow from 2014 to 2016. Upon completing my doctoral program, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology of Hong Kong Baptist University. My research interests center on early medieval China, with particular focus on its shifting literary landscape and culture, poetic representation and migration, as well as its literary communities and identities built around social status and the production, consumption and institutionalisation of culture. In addition, I am drawn to comparative literary and cultural studies, Western poetics, hermeneutics and poetic translation. I have published multiple articles and book reviews, presented regularly at international workshops and conferences, and am currently developing my Ph.D. dissertation into a book-length manuscript.
