Biography

I am currently researching the cultural politics of location filmmaking as well as several projects related to East Asian cinema.

In recent months, I have organized two academic conferences in China: Moving Images and the Digital Eco-City at Shanghai Expo (Oct. 2010) and (with Tsinghua University) International Seminar for Cinema and Television in the 3D Age at the China National Film Museum, Beijing (Jan. 2011).

In South Korea, I was a member of the jury of the 12th Jeonju International Film Festival (April/May 2011), and was invited to present a paper on behalf of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies' Asian Pacific American Caucus at the inaugural Busan Cinema Forum, Busan International Film Festival (October 2011).

I have extensive experience of PhD supervision, and welcome inquiries from prospective students interested in the following areas:

  • Cultural Geographies of Film and Television
  • East Asian Cinema (Chinese, Japanese, Korean)
  • International Film Festivals
  • Transnational Film Cultures
  • Hollywood
  • World Cinema

I am Deputy Director of the Centre for East Asian Cultural Studies, founded in March 2012.
