My research focuses on medieval Chinese religions, specifically the practices of Buddhism and Daoism. I am particularly interested in the parallels and intersections between these two traditions, especially the visual and material culture of ritual materials. My work also seeks to engage with broader methodological and theoretical concerns in ritual studies, visual culture and religious history.
