I am the Elizabeth and Cecil Kent Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of History, University of Saskatchewan. Receiving my doctorate from the University of Oxford, I was the Economic History Society Tawney Fellow (a junior research fellow) at the Institute of Historical Research in the School of Advanced Study, University of London; an affiliated researcher in the Department of East Studies, University of Cambridge; and a visiting scholar at the Center for Chinese Studies in Taiwan. I am a historian of China (esp. early modern and modern periods) and Hong Kong, with particular emphasis on the maritime and river world, empires and colonialism, frontiers and borderlands, and race and ethnicity. With a reading knowledge of Manchu, an official language of Qing-dynasty China, I have also published work in Manchu studies.
