Biography


 

My primary research focuses on the transnational history of Chinese in Mexico during the first half of the twentieth century. 

My secondary research focuses on Latin America during the Cold War era. As with my primary research project, I examine the region through a transnational perspective. 

I am fully fluent in English, Chinese, Spanish, and French, and I learn a new language every seven years since birth. My next target language is Russian, expecting to start in 2023.
