Research Expertise:

I am an interdisciplinary social researcher, and my work is informed by the fields of sociology, psychoanalysis, and pedagogy. My research contributes to theoretical, empirical and methodological knowledge through: 

  • Understanding the psychic, social, and discursive influences on Chinese diaspora, Chineseness, and broadly ethnic diversity and migration-related issues (including mental health, physical activity and sport)

  • Developing creative approaches to research: arts-based, (auto)ethnograhic and digital methods

Indicators of Esteem:

I am a recipient of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship, AIESEP Young Scholar and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).

 

I am an editorial board member of Sport, Education and Society, an associate editor for Leisure Sciences, and an Adjunct Fellow at the Institute for Culture and Society in Western Sydney University.

 

Funding:

I am a named investigator on research funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 Scheme, Economic and Social Research Council, British Academy, Australian Research Grant Council, and philanthropic donations.
