Bio/Research

After spending the first eighteen years of my life in Iowa City, I wanted to go as far away from home as possible. When I got to Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, I told a first-year advisor that I might want to learn Chinese or Japanese. He told me that Lewis & Clark's Chinese teacher was excellent. I followed his advice and a few weeks later I had a Chinese name, Zhou Jierong 周杰荣, and had embarked on a journey that led to the Harbin Institute of Technology (1997) and Tsinghua University (2000-2001) for language training, and to the Tianjin Academy of Social Sciences (2004-2005) for dissertation research. In between, I studied Spanish in the Dominican Republic and worked at an NGO in Mexico City. I moved to Burnaby in 2008 after completing my PhD at the University of California, San Diego.
