  • June and Simon Li Professor in the History of Art


I joined the Department of the History of Art and Lincoln College in 2019. I previously taught at Columbia University, the University of Colorado, and the University of California.

College teaching

I teach the 'Visual Culture in Contemporary East Asia' module to second-year undergraduates, as well as 'Mapping East & West' to Master's students.


Although my primary research focuses on early modern Chinese and Korean art, I have extensively researched and published on a much wider spectrum of art historical topics, including print culture, cartography, literary criticism, and post-globalism in contemporary East Asian art.
