My journey in the field of nonprofit management began in 2002, when I was an undergraduate student majoring in cooperative economics. After two-year graduate education, one-year mandatory military service, and three-year experience of working in the technology industry in Taiwan, I realized that I needed a career change to pursue my passion in nonprofit finance. Thus, I joined Arizona State University and returned my focus to nonprofit management study in 2014. ASU afforded me a great opportunity to develop my research and teaching skills. I am excited to join the University of Hawaiʻi. I desire to be a future thought leader in the field of nonprofit and public management and to work closely with future leaders of Hawaiʻi, the mainland, and the Asia-Pacific region.

I am currently interested in nonprofit finance, in particular in understanding revenue interactions, revenue diversification, fundraising, overhead costs and commercialization. My research has been featured in Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Nonprofit Quarterly, and China: An International Journal.
