Research and Teaching Interests: 

My main area of research is Warring States China (5th to 3rd centuries B.C.). Although my focus is intellectual and cultural history, the study of this period is necessarily interdisciplinary, and my work also involves archaeology, art history, literature, and philosophy. I am currently editing a collaborative volume on Han Feizi, to be published by Springer as part of the Dao Companions to Chinese Philosophy series.
