I study cartography, information networking, Chinese nationalism, and Qing colonialism in very late imperial China, 1860-1911. My dissertation project concentrates on productions of late Qing maps and other cartographic products and their influences on the conceptualization of the Chinese nation. Currently, I am working on two essential sub-projects: the Guangxu Atlas project and the commercial map productions during this period.

I am also interested in public history. Since 2021 summer, I and my two friends have started a history podcast, Three Small People (三小人), in Mandarin. This podcast aims to introduce interesting academic books to the general public. If interested, you can find it on Spotify, Apple Podcast, Soundcloud, and Google Podcast.

Before coming to UW, I received MA degree in History Department at National Taiwan University and served as a research assistant at Sinica Academia, Taipei.
