Current Research:
Opium discourses and prohibition policies in Late-Qing and Early-Republican China.


During my undergraduate study at Jinan University, I was mainly trained in the history of Chinese immigration and the rural societies in late-imperial China. I came to the United States in 2015 and started to study global history at Marquette University. My graduate paper examined a case of early contact between China and the United States during the Embargo of 1807. My current research project focuses on the opium addiction as a social problem and the related discourses among intellectuals and officials in Late-Qing China.
