He received his B.A. in International Business from Yuan Ze University, and his M.A. in Buddhist Studies from Fo Guang University.

His current research project is to investigate how Hangzhou Buddhist culture is reimagined and reconstructed through a late Ming Buddhist monastic gazetteer titled the Wulin Fanzhi (武林梵志).
