About me

Research Topic: My research concerns the role of creativity in the technology start-up ecosystem in Taipei, Taiwan. In this study I explore the use and understanding of artificial intelligence technologies, the individual experience of personhood, and guiding ethos among entrepreneurs. My research questions extend to ongoing transformations in global capitalism, the public good and patterns of governance in Taiwan.
