About me

I am a Postdoctoral Research and Teaching Fellow in Chinese Language and Culture at the School of Humanities.

I joined the University of Westminster in 2019. Prior to that, I worked at the University of Leicester where I held a Teaching Fellowship in Modern Chinese History. 

I completed my PhD at the University of Nottingham. My thesis examined the online politics of representation surrounding Tibetan modernity in contemporary China. I hold a BA in Chinese Studies and Sociology at University College Cork, and a MA in East Asian Politics from Leiden University. I also studied Mandarin at Sichuan University, and Tibetan at the Rangjung Yeshe Institute.


My teaching has covered a range of modules on Chinese society, history, politics and culture, including topics on gender, sexuality, ethnicity and celebrity in the PRC. 


My research focuses on the cultural dimensions of social and political transformation in modern and contemporary China, with a particular interest in representations of ethnicity and race, gender and sexuality, military and nationalism.
