Personal profile

Chinese Name



Historian of Christianity who studies evangelicalism and fundamentalism in China and Southeast Asia. In my doctoral research, which I completed in 2020, I examined the formation of transnational Chinese Christianity in the 20th century. Currently, I am working to convert my doctoral dissertation into a monograph.

A second area of interest/expertise which I am developing is the history of exertional heat health and how it interrelates with the exercise sciences. Along with this, I am exploring oral history and ethnography as methods that can be used to augment this relatively new area of research. In this sense, I am also a historian of heat health and the exercise sciences.

Broadly, I seek to inspire people to see the relevance and meaning of history in their lives, and its potential to be applied to the workplace and broader social, cultural and governance issues.

In terms of teaching recognition, I'm a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
