Personal profile


I obtained my Ph.D. in Economic History at LSE and am currently working as a British Academy Postdoc Fellow in Economics at the Economics Department of the University of Manchester. Before this position, I worked as a Fellow in Chinese Economic History at LSE (Teaching Focused) and a Tawney Postdoc Fellow in Economic History at the University of London. 

With a strong passion for reviving Chinese Economic History, my research themes investigate Chinese financial, economic, and business history from the long-run perspective.  With solid economics and history training in both qualitative and quantitative methods, I am interested in how financial institutions evolved under the influence of external factors such as government policy, law, international business, and internal factors, including business strategies and governance structure.   

I became a mother in 2017 and took teaching-focused positions at the LSE and then the University of Manchester. These experiences slowed down my research output measured by numbers. However, during this time, I immersed myself in broader literature and found new research motivations through teaching a broad range of courses.
