I was born and educated in China, and came to Canada in 1992 to pursue a Ph.D. in Asian Studies at UBC as well as seeking “a life elsewhere”. After teaching at the University of Alberta and University of Sydney, Australia, I found my “home elsewhere” here in Vancouver.
Trained in literary and cultural studies, I have taught Asian content courses in the Department of Humanities and the Global Asia Program (formerly Asia-Canada Program) since 2008. I also keep myself busy with bilingual writing and travel-studies as a visiting scholar to universities in Asia, Europe and Australia. Living between cultures gives me inspiration, experiences and dual perspectives on the world and myself.
