I've recently finished my first monograph titled "Proust, China and Intertextual Engagement - Translation and Transcultural Dialogue" (Palgrave Macmillan, forthcoming 2017). I've received my MA in French and English Literature (first), MSc in Comparative/General Literature (distinction) and PhD in French at the University of Edinburgh, where I also taught undergraduate modules in French language, literature, film and modern French history. I was selected as 'pensionnaire étranger' (2012-2013) at the École Normale Supérieure (Paris). Outside academia, I've worked as a part-time conference interpreter (Chinese, English, French). I've joined Lund University since the beginning of 2017 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Comparative Literature working on a project on literature and art of the Chinese diaspora in France.

I am a co-organizer of SOL:s seminar series Komplitt: Forum for Comparative Literature.
