In 2015 I received my PhD in East Asian History from Columbia University. My principle period is the Song through Yuan dynasties (960-1368), and my topic of specialization is Chinese medical history. However, my interests and my reading are broad, and I have taught university and high school courses in history, humanities, philosophy and world religions. My current interests include the literary practices of Chinese physicians, styles of practice/problematics as a way of understanding East Asian medical history, and the fundamental place of medical thought in Chinese thought and literature.
An article of mine, “‘A Thousand Changes and Ten Thousand Transformations’: Individualising Illness in the Northern Song (960-1127)” appeared in the Journal of Chinese Medicine, and I have published a three essays on the academic blog, Asian Medicine Zone: “The Doctor, the Scholar (and the Meditator?) in Middle Period China,” “The Hermeneutics of a Song Dynasty Case Record,” and “From Text to Case and Back Again: The Codification of Ye Gui’s Clinical Experience in Systematic Differentiation Of Warm Disease.”
