I grew up in northwestern China (Shaanxi). Prior to joining Uvic, I studied anthropology as a master student at Illinois State University. My master thesis was about microfinance in China, exploring the role of microfinance institution (MFI) employees in development and their position between the MFI and women borrowers. My current research interests lie broadly in economic anthropology and development.
