Research Area:Music and Ethnicity, Modernity, Nationalism, Sustainability; Sound Studies

My research interests center around music, identity formation and issues of sustainability in relation to modernization, with the geographical foci on Taiwan and China. Since my PhD research, I have continued to explore how music mediates the emergence of Hakka new ethnicities. My current project studies how Hakka children’s songs intersect with place-making in Taiwan.
