I am a historian of Modern China, specialised in the history of science and medicine, as well as gender and sexuality.
Since 2014 I have been Lecturer in Chinese Studies at the Department of History, University of Liverpool. Before that I was a Research Fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
I studied at the University of Cambridge, and did Natural Sciences (BA 2003) and History and Philosophy of Science (MPhil 2004, PhD 2010).
I am writing a book about what people thought of Chinese sexuality. I am also researching acupuncture and the British Sinologist Joseph Needham (1900-1995).
Outside of the classroom, my preoccupations include 1980s Cantonese pop music, retro-videogaming, and most recently, growing thistles.
A full CV will be uploaded here shortly.
