I am a PhD student in anthropology at Harvard University studying foodways and the historical archaeology of the Chinese Diaspora. In other words, I combine archival research, oral history, and archaeological science to look at changes in how people eat as they move around the world.
Although I love to dig, I work mostly with existing collections. Some projects I am involved with include the Cangdong Village Project, Arboretum Chinese Labor Quarters Site, and Market Street Chinatown Archaeology Project. See a full list of current and former projects here.
