Researcher Directory

This directory serves as a single portal to all Simon Fraser University scholars with research interests related to Asia, whether in its geographic context or in relation to diasporic, social, economic, political and cultural contexts. Since the institution has no department dedicated exclusively to the study of Asia, related research is currently conducted by a number of scholars across four faculties and twenty-one departments, centres and schools.

It is hoped that this resource will help foster research connections within the university and between SFU and other research institutions. If you are an SFU scholar currently conducting research in a field related to Asia, and your name is not listed on this page, please contact David Lam Centre at

We also welcome updates on research and fieldwork, lectures, conferences, publications, new courses, project summaries and notes, news of partnerships, as well as notice of SFU faculty terms as visiting scholars and funding opportunities for faculty and students.

Items should be no more than 50-75 words and sent to Associated longer documents can be submitted using Word format.
