Research Interests:

  • History of Chinese classics

My main research interests lie in pre-Han and Han Chinese texts. I am now conducting the doctoral research project on the interpretative history of Chinese classics in Han dynasty which involves re-interpreting extant historical records and studying newly excavated writings and overseas findings. The research is fully supported by Hop Wai Research Grant donated by Prof. LEE Hon-ching 利漢楨教授 in collaboration with the D.C.
