As a PhD student at the department of Humanities and Creative Writing at Hong Kong Baptist University, he works on non-chronological and otherwise alternative uses of time in contemporary East Asian cinemas, analysing how films such as Kaili Blues, 2046, and Peppermint Candy explore changing perceptions of time and space in fast-changing globalising environments. Earlier, he completed a research MA in Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam, with a thesis on the cinema of Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhangke. [Book Review]
