M.A., History, Peking University, Beijing, China 2012
B.A., International Studies, Peking University, Beijing, China 2009
I study Chinese History, and history of medicine and public health. My current research focuses on the history of public health and ethnic minority people in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). A PhD candidate at the University of Washington, I am completing my dissertation, Diagnosing Minorities: Ethnic Health and Nation-state Building in China’s Inner Asian Frontiers, 1949-1964. My work has been funded by the SSRC, AHA, Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation, the UW China Studies Program, and the UW Simpson Center for the Humanities. Before coming to the UW, I received my BA and MA degrees at Peking University in Beijing. I’m interested in teaching Chinese History, History of Disease and Public Health, as well as interdisciplinary topics related to Chinese Studies and East Asian Studies.
