My research is concerned with China’s regional and global interactions in the modern and contemporary era during times of conflict and shifting power dynamics. I am particularly interested in the evolution of and associated contestations over values and norms, including those concerning global governance, international law and the international political economy.
I supervise research on topics related to modern Chinese history, historical memory, China–Europe relations and the political economy and security relations of East Asia. I particularly welcome projects on the history and memory of imperialism in East Asia, East Asian regionalism and Chinese diplomacy and governance approaches.
