I have a 100% record for obtaining annual funding for research projects. Every year at NTU (2000-2016) I was the recipient of competitive National Science Council and Ministry of Science and Technology Awards.

I have received numerous awards, bursaries, fellowships, consultancies and visiting professorships from twenty-four international institutions, beginning with K.U. Leuven (1997), Louvain-La-Neuve (1997), National Taiwan Normal University (2002-3), the Taiwan National Language Testing Centre (2003-4), the University of Poitiers (2003-4), and the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, the University of Cambridge (2004-5), most recently, KIMEP University, Kazakhstan (2020).  

Earlier major awards included a British Academy Award (AHRB)  for three-year Ph.D. research (1995-1998), The University of Notre Dame research and tutorial scholarship (1998), the Taiwan Ministry of Education Award for Outstanding Ph.D. Research (2001) and the Taiwan Presidential Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (2004). In 2015 I was nominated for a Ministry of Education National Excellence in Research Award. 

I am now seeking funding for my Environmental Humanities projects within the context of Westbrook Humanities for Environmental Nurture. (WHEN).
