After finishing the M.A in Continental Philosophy and Literature at the University of Warwick, I continued to pursue my interest in theoretical approaches to contemporary literature by studying for a D.Phil. at the University of Sussex. After completing my research, I took the post of Assistant Professor of English Literature at National Dong Hwa University in Taiwan, where I taught for four years.
