I am an assistant professor in History and EALCS. My research interests include local history of the Qing dynasty and early republican political culture, with a special focus on the emergence of popular nationalism and the potential of republicanism. I am also attracted to revolutions. I hope to understand people’s motivations and choices in the swirl of a revolution.
