I am a Postdoctoral Teaching and Research Fellow with the School of Humanities. Prior to joining Westminster, I taught at Hull and SOAS, University of London, where I completed my PhD. As one of the founders of Queer Asia, a global platform which endeavours to challenge dominant ideas, forms, and representations of gender and sexuality, I have organised talks, screenings and seminars.
Before coming to the UK, I was involved in theatre and worked as a part-time radio producer-presenter.
My main teaching duties in Westminster include undergraduate modules on Chinese language and cinema, and translation at postgraduate level. As a professionally certified educator, I believe that Socratic questioning is an effective pedagogical approach for empowering students to challenge their assumptions and developing their critical thinking skills.
My research interests range from Sinophone film, media, theatre, visual culture to literature. A key aspect of my research examines the representations of audiences, censorship in Sinphone cinema and theatre.I am also interested in issues of cultural intervention, artistic autonomy, and the mediation of death and dying in theatre. One of my research projects examines the Chinese Poster Collection in Westminster.
