I am responsible for managing all aspects of the project database, including server administration, programming, data entry and analysis, and extensions. Additionally, I help with project-related research and English translations of key documents. I am also currently developing a research project that examines the rehabilitation of sports leaders and athletes after the Cultural Revolution.

Outside of this project, I am working on a book manuscript based on my doctoral dissertation (UC Santa Cruz, 2014) that traces the political significance of sport to the Chinese socialist state during the Mao years and its importance in shaping transnational networks. Related publications and presentations can be found on my website.
