I am a Ph.D researcher specialised in visual anthropology and Asian studies. I was trained in film and TV production in Tsinghua University, and also received a MA in Visual Anthropology at Granada Centre, University of Manchester. With research interests in death, ritual, spatial perception, and social transformations in contemporary China, I've been working on a project on mortuary ritual of Tujia, an ethnic group in southwest China in the last two years.

I'm currently based on University of Westminster, developing a research project funded by the Leverhulme Trust, looking into cultural heritage and folk religion of Naxi people in Yunnan.
