Work in Progress:
I am currently preparing a book manuscript on the Jesuit financial networks between China and Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. I am also preparing a book chapter for the “Empire in Asia: A New Global History” project at the National University of Singapore, in which I will examine the role of the Jesuits in the Nerchinsk Treaty (1689) between the Qing and the Muscovite empires.
