I’m currently in my first year of PhD, started in January 2021. My research is based on textual analysis and archival studies on China’s cultural diplomacy in Arab countries (1955-1966). I gained my MA degree in Arabic interpretation from Beijing Foreign Studies University. I also spent a year abroad at Lebanese University in 2015 by government-sponsored project, studying Arabic language and literature.
Research interest: Sino-Middle Eastern relations, cultural decolonization, 19-20th century History
