His research focuses on the modern Chinese history, especially rebellions in twentieth century China, Si Qing Movement and cultural revolution in rural china (Hebei, Hubei and Guangdong), and the electricity in Chinese History. Now he is currently working on the Taking and Resisting the Household Survey in Southeast China, 1909-1911. His research seeks to complicate the picture by looking at the variety of local causes leading to acts of resistance against the household survey, including the changes in sociopolitical structure related to deliberations over the possibility of parliamentary representation. His next plan is to study the electricity in rural china.
