Project Borehole seismic imaging and monitoring, Stanford University and Universidade Federal da Bahia (1/1/1996 - Present)

Principal Investigator:

This collaborative research activity began in 1996 and has run for more than 20 years. Over this time, I have taught short courses at the Federal University of Bahia and meetings of the local geophysical society on borehole seismic imaging and tomography. In addition, I have co-advised several MS level graduate students. Recently, we completed a research project on CO2 monitoring with sponsorship of Petrobras, the national petroleum company.

Project Ethnic Potential: The Constitution of Minority Identities in Post-Classification China, Stanford University

Principal Investigator:

In China of the 1950s, ethnologists, linguists, and Communist authorities undertook a bureaucratic-cum-social scientific project known as the “Ethnic Classification.” Here it was determined which among China’s hundreds of ethnic minority communities would and would not be officially recognized by the state. Such was the subject of his first book, Coming to Terms with the Nation: Ethnic Classification in Modern China (UC Press, 2011).

Project QWERTY is Dead: A History of the Chinese Computer

Principal Investigator:

As the first-ever history of Chinese computing in the 20th and 21st centuries, QWERTY is Dead will explore the circuitous pathways and eccentric personalities of this unknown chapter in the history of global information technology. Drawing upon extensive oral histories, material artifacts, and archives from Asia, Europe, and the United States, the book charts out the pursuit of Chinese computing from its inception in the early Cold War period; its pathway through a network of American academic and military outfits that included MIT, the CIA, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S.

Project Grave Reform in Modern China

Principal Investigator:

The Deathscape China project is building and harnessing an interactive spatial and textual analysis platform to examine the phenomenon of grave relocation in modern China, a campaign that has led to the exhumation and reburial of 10 million corpses in the past decade alone, and has transformed China’s graveyards into sites of acute personal, social, political, and economic contestation.
