Ph.D., Harvard University, 1999
Here at Yale, I teach classical Chinese and Sinological Methods, courses that constantly challenge me to explore and discover new texts, sources, or research tools. Prior to returning to Yale, I was Assistant Professor of East Asian Studies at Bryn Mawr College, where I taught Chinese literature, Chinese art history and courses on early Chinese cities, and on contemporary Chinese art. I received my BA in Literature, and my MA and Ph.D. in East Asian Languages and Civilizations from Harvard University, where I specialized in Chinese poetry and art. I also studied painting connoisseurship at the Sackler and Freer Galleries in Washington D.C. My own research focuses on Early Medieval Chinese Literature and Art, and I am working on a book manuscript on early Chinese gardens.
