Personal profile

Research interests

I am an interdisciplinary social researcher, and my work is informed by sociology, cultural studies, pedagogy, critical theory, psychoanalysis, New Confucianism, and creative research methods. 

I have an international standing in relation to Culture and Diversity in health and physical activity, sport and leisure. My research contribute to theoretical, empirical and methodological knowledge through: 

  • Using psychoanalytic and sociological approaches to understand Chinese diaspora, Chineseness, and broadly ethnic diversity and migration-related issues (including mental health, physical activity and sport)
  • Extending an anthropocosmic perspective in embodiment and social justice research
  • Developing creative approaches to research: arts-based, (auto)ethnograhic and digital methods

I am deputy directors of two research centres (Centre for Qualitative Research, and Centre for Equality in Sport, Physical activity, and Health) at University of Bath. Externally, I am an editorial board member of Sport, Education and Society, an associate editor for Leisure Sciences, and an Adjunct Fellow at the Institute for Culture and Society in Western Sydney University.
