Ph.D. Student

I am interested in Chinese modernization and transnational/transpacific interactions in the early twentieth century, focusing on technology and science. I am currently working on a project that discusses agricultural extension in the early Republic period. I am also interested in transnational flows of culture, especially those embodied in translations, travel literature, and advertising.
