I have conducted my MPhil and bachelor research projects, which focus on exploring the role of Taiwan’s Japanese colonial heritage in constructing the identity of Taiwanese people in terms of their everyday practice and bodily memory. After joining our NVIDIA Joint-Lab on Mixed Reality, we are currently working on the “Digital Technology Enhanced Culture and Heritage in the Development of the Knowledge Economy” research project. In this project, we will examine essential issues of digitalisation in cultural heritage and museum context of China and propose both a technical and a theoretical framework for sustainable development in this sector.
