What do you like most about your job?
My job allows me to take part in the important efforts to promote East Asian art and visual culture. Through the grant-funded Dispersed Chinese Art Digitization Project, I collaborate with a team of international scholars and digital experts to help increase global understanding of China’s cultural heritage. I enjoy the opportunity to learn more about the art and culture that I grew up with, while contributing to the long-term preservation of and access of our research materials for a broader audience.
What was the last good book you read?
I like graphic novels because of the combination of art and text for storytelling. One of them includes Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Adaptation (2018) by Ari Folman, illustrated by David Polonsky. There are many different adaptations of this book; this adaptation resonates with me the most because of the stunning artistic style and interesting interpretation of the original version.
You might work with me if …
You are interested in the center’s digital collections, the Dispersed Chinese Art Digitization Project, and/or any collaboration opportunities with us.
Do you have any routines for improving your energy and focus?
