Biography and Areas of Interest

My research focuses on Daoism, Chinese fiction, and religion and Chinese literature of late imperial China (14th-19th centuries). I am currently exploring the Daoism and local society in the Ming as well as the religious dimensions of Ming novels. My teaching interests include Taoism and Chinese culture, Chinese culture, pre-modern Chinese fiction in translation, Journey to the West,and advanced Chinese.
