About

My research centers on the archaeology of Song-Yuan Chinaand the cross-cultural interactions along the Silk Road. My dissertation explores the structure and dynamics of the production networks in the export-oriented porcelain industry at Dehua, Quanzhou, China. I also carried out research on the porcelain production of the Yuan dynasty at Jingdezhen, the distribution of Chinese porcelain along the Maritime Silk Road, and the interactions between Chinese and Islamic ceramics.
