My training in Britain has left clear marks on me. In addition to leading me into the academia world, it continues to shape my research interests. I became tremendously interested in people, things and events understood in cross-cultural terms. For the past ten years, my research has dealt with the interactions between China and the West, both economically and culturally, from 1850 to 1950. My research focuses on three main historical issues: trade between Britain and China, Chinese urban culture formed by foreign-imported leisure, and the impact of Western medicine on China. Overall, I hope the results of these researches will further our understanding on the formation of Chinese modernity and on the changes that have influenced our lives today.
