 I am a PhD student in the Department of History at Cornell University. My research focuses on history of gender, material culture, and history of Chinese medicine in early modern China. I am particularly interested in the circulation of medical recipes through various genres of texts, and the medical discourses and practices related to women's bodily maintenance and cultivations.
