Research Associate, Museum and Heritage Studies, University of Leicester

I havea background in Art History with a focus on Asian Art and Museum Studies. I was Curatorial Assistant at the Percival David Foundation of Chinese Art (2000-2001) and was part of the curatorial team that developed the Cultural Olympiad exhibition, 'Suits and Saris' at New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester (2012). I have also worked as a Research Associate and Programme Manager within the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester and I am currently employed as Research Associate on the Affective Digital Histories project, also at the University of Leicester. My monograph, 'Museum Representations of Maoist China' is due to be published by Ashgate later this year (Autumn 2014).
