Biography

I am a first year PhD student from Hong Kong. I finished my undergraduate and master's degrees in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I am interested in the impact of European military technology on early modern China, particularly during the Ming-Qing Transition (1618-1648). Building on my master's dissertation, titled "the Impact of Western Artillery on the city-defence system in Ming-Qing Transition", I intend to explore the dissemination and impact of European military knowledge in Ming-Qing China.
