Although during my time at the IVPP I have not organized any of my own field work due to the fact the complicated and often delicate organization of field projects in China is impossible to execute as an ex-pat, I have been lucky to join colleagues and good friends in the field. I have conducted field work in the United States, Canada, China, Mongolia, and Romania.
