Research Interests

My research interest is how East Asian countries responded to the impact caused by the importation of Western art music from the late nineteenth century onwards.

Area of proposed thesis

Working under the supervision of Prof Daniel Grimley, my ongoing doctoral project examines the reception history of Western art music in East Asia, including Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, and Japan, through the lens of colonialism, Cold War ideologies, and capitalism with a case study of the reception of the Spanish cellist and humanitarian, Pablo Casals.
