Biography

M.A., History, Peking University, Beijing, China 2012
B.A., International Studies, Peking University, Beijing, China 2009

I’m a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of History, and my research focuses on modern China and the history of medicine and public health. I grew up in Zhejiang Province, China. Before coming to UW, I received my BA and MA from Peking University in Beijing. My dissertation, entitled “Diagnosing Minorities: Ethnic Health and Nation-state Building in China’s Inner Asian Frontiers, 1949-1964,” studies the history of Chinese public health projects in the ethnic minority regions. In 2016-2017, I conducted research in Inner Mongolia and Sichuan Province. My teaching interests include Chinese History, History of Disease and Public Health, as well as interdisciplinary topics related to Chinese Studies and East Asian Studies.
