Expertise Summary

I have been with The University of Nottingham Ningbo, China since 2007. From 2004 to 2007 I was a Departmental Lecturer in Chinese History at the University of Oxford.

My research mainly concerns China’s foreign relations. Initially this focused on the study of murder cases in China that involved a foreigner as either murderer or victim. Since I started my Doctoral degree my research has expanded into the study of other types of foreign relations in China, specifically relations with various nomadic groups to China’s north during the Ming and the Northern Wei Dynasties. My Doctoral thesis was on the relations between China, Britain, America and India over the issue of Tibet from 1911 to 1959.
