I have been teaching at the Department since 2012, right after completing my doctorate here. I write on translations in early modern periodical press in China. My on-going projects center around the rediscovery of popular literary societies in early Republican China and the reassessment of the May Fourth discourse with a focus on translation. My current projects engage digital methods such as network analysis and data visualization.

I teach introductory courses on translation studies, English-Chinese translation, and English/Cantonese/Putonghua interpreting and final-year translation projects. In the classroom, I enjoy working with my students to challenge common assumptions about translation and to experiment with our languages and creative thinking.
