Educational Background

M.A. in East Asian Languages and Cultures (Chinese History), Columbia University, 2018.

B.A. in History, Binghamton University SUNY, 2015.


I am a Ph.D. student working on 8th-14th century (the middle-period) China, focusing on its political institution, society, and religion. My current interest aims at resolving an imbalance in the scholarship on middle period China that predominantly focuses on South China and neglects the history of various peoples and cultures in the regions north of Yangzi River. By examining North China during the middle-period, I seek to contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of middle-period China with regard to its state-society relationship, local societal formation, and various forms of violence.


My advisor is TJ Hinrichs.
