Biography

Expertise Summary

I started my job as lecturer, in 2004, in the Department of Hispanic and Latin American Studies at The University of Nottingham, UK and since 2005, I have been teaching at the Ningbo Campus. My main research interest is on the field of Everyday Life. I am interested in the relation between immigration and everyday life, exploring the notion of the Outsider in contemporary society, particularly in China. Other areas of research include psychology, creativity in education and meditation.
