My research interests include premodern Chinese poetry and poetics and fantastic tales and novels in late imperial China. I am particularly interested in the process of literary canon formation in premodern China as well as translation and circulation of premodern Chinese literature in a cross-cultural context. In the past several years, I have focused on two major research projects: one centers on the reception of the eighth-century Chinese poet Du Fu and his poetry, and the other is associated with the sixteenth-century novel Xiyou ji (Journey to the West).


The Reception of Du Fu (712-770) and His Poetry in Imperial China (Brill, 2017)
