My name is Jia-Ou Song, I am a first-year PhD candidate (and TA) at the University of Manchester. Most of the time, I can be found amongst colleagues at the Centre for History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM), but my home departments are Chinese Studies and Museology, both of the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. That said, I now somehow classify as a social scientist, and train with the School of Social Sciences. All in all, this means that I am a researcher who frequents multiple buildings on campus, so if you’re lost, you know who to ask.
