Born in Taiwan, I earned dual BA degrees in Philosophy and Sociology from National Taiwan University. Following work experiences in arts administration, I pursued further professional growth in London, achieving an MA in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy with distinction, and subsequently a PhD from the Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths, University of London.

My doctoral research focused on cross-cultural exchange and cultural identity, particularly examining Taiwan’s cultural diplomacy and policy through the lens of performing arts. I co-edited the book Taiwan’s International Cultural Relations: Culture as a Method (臺灣的國際文化關係:文化做為方法), ISBN 978-957-732-641-6, contributing further to the field.

Before joining the Graduate Institute of Arts Management and Entrepreneurship at National Sun Yat-sen University, I served as a research project co-investigator at the Taiwan Association of Cultural Policy Studies and taught in the International Master of Arts Program in Cultural and Creative Industries.

Since 2018, I have been a board member of the Taiwan Association of Cultural Policy Studies and joined the Taiwan Association for Arts Management and Education in 2022. I am also involved in the International Cultural Relations Research Alliance.

I am interested to supervise master’s dissertations and PhD theses on topics including cultural diplomacy, soft power, place branding, arts administration, and cultural policy studies.

Beyond academia, I am a freelance writer focusing on performing arts management, creative industries, and British culture. My articles are published in Performing Arts Redefined (in Chinese, formerly Performing Arts Review) and UDN Global (in Chinese, Online).
