I joined Cardiff as Lecturer in Chinese Studies in 2020. I am teaching modules of Chinese history and culture at all undergraduate levels. My research interests lie in the studies of Chinese and Korean popular cultures. 

Before moving to the U.K. to pursue my PhD at SOAS, University of London, I obtained a BA in Korean Studies and Translation with First Class Honours from the University of Hong Kong and an MA in Media and Communication from Korea University. Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked as an interpreter for various institutions, including Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Hong Kong. I took up my current post of Lecturer in Chinese Studies in Cardiff from February 2020. 

For the school year 2019/2020, I am the module leader of China in Context and Cultures in Context (Chinese). I also teach Chinese Cinema, Chinese Society & Culture, and the Chinese seminars of Introduction to Specialised Translation.
