Personal profile

Research interests

I am an interdisciplinary social researcher. My work is influenced by education (health and physical education), sociology, cultural studies, critical theory, Chinese and Continental philosophy, and psychoanalysis.

My current research focuses on contemporary topics in health, sport, and education, and on three areas: Chinese Diasporas, Diversity and Inclusion, and Creative Research Methods. I work and supervise research students within an interpretive, and transformative research frameworks.

Specifically, I have an international standing on my original and globally situated research program, “Rethinking Health Experiences and Active Lifestyles: Chinese Communities” REHEAL-C. This focus meets the need of a lack of sociological imagination of Chineseness in health and physical cultures in Anglophone countries. 

My scholarship is shaped by and in turn aims to shape diversity, equity, and inclusion in health and wellbeing regarding knowledge production, race/ethnic-relations, LGBTQ+ rights, and specifically on access, representations, inclusion, and language.

My public engagement activities include arts-based methods work, and frequent invited talks by universities and diversity organisations aiming to increase awareness of contemporary ethnic and cultural issues in health, sport, and education for community and inclusion, and knowledge exchange.
