About

My research interests are in East Asian history, specifically the intellectual and economic history of China and Japan from the 19th century to the present. Under the supervision of Dr. Hill I will be studying the end of China’s dynastic cycle and its transformation into a communist republic, contrasted against the strengthening of Japan during the Meiji Restoration, and its dominance in the early twentieth century as the Empire of Japan.
