I’m currently an MA/Ph.D student in the UC Santa Barbara Department of History, with an emphasis on Ancient Chinese History, and I received my A.B. in East Asian Studies from Princeton University in 2011. As a member of the Chinese Diaspora, my independent work has generally focused on interactions between historical Chinese people and neighboring ethnicities and polities. I also have a strong interest in human rights advocacy, technology, and the culinary arts.

This website primarily serves as a means for me to write about matters both trivial and important to me and to showcase my professional, academic, and artistic work.
