Receiving my doctorate from the University of Oxford, I am currently a Kent Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of History, University of Saskatchewan. I was the Economic History Society Tawney Fellow (a postdoctoral/junior research fellow) at the Institute of Historical Research in the University of London’s School of Advanced Study, 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.
