My teaching interests include Classical Chinese Literature, Chinese-English Translation and Interpreting and Modern Chinese. I am currently working on a monograph tentatively entitled The Story of the Stone's Journey to the West: The History of the English Translations of Hongloumeng. By putting Hongloumeng’s English translation history into a broader context, I aim at exploring the history and variants of this canon’s translation for insights into the nature of translation, the rise of vernacular literature in China, and the changing character of Chinese-European relations.
