Reserach Interests
  In my MA thesis, I tried to consider possible problems of the origin of language families from the theoretical and methodological perspectives of linguistics and archaeology. I used the origin and expansion of Austronesian as my major research topic. When I did my Ph.D. dissertation research, I changed my interests to the salt industry and distribution from the Neolithic period (ca. 3500 B.C.) to the Han Dynasty in the Three Gorges area, China. My current research project is a surface survey project in the Chengdu Plain, Sichuan Province, China. This is an international cooperation project with Chengdu Archaeology Team, Peking University, Harvard University, University of Washington, St. Louis, and UCLA. Through this project, we hope we can understand the emergence of complex societies from the Neolithic Baodun Culture to the Bronze Age Sanxingdui Culture in the Chengdu Plain.
