I am a doctoral candidate at the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Prof. Isabelle Cochelin (University of Toronto) and Prof. Albrecht Diem (Syracuse University).
My dissertation focuses on the conception of the spiritual family in medieval monastic communities around what would be modern-day France. More broadly, my research and teaching areas are premodern European history, religious history, and gender, sexuality, and kinship.
I was born in Changsha, China, and grew up in Montréal, Québec. I studied in my mother tongue, French, until I attended McGill University, Montréal, where I completed a Bachelor of Arts (First-Class Honours) in history and philosophy.
I am a scholar who is passionate about facilitating the transmission of knowledge in any shape and form, and about promoting issues of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
