hat tip to Jerome Keating in Taipei
Dr Alberts got his Ph.D. in East Asian languages and civilization with a focus on pre-modern China at U. Penn.
His research focused mainly on the Yao minority in South China, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. He was at Academia Sinica in Taipei doing post-doctoral work.
Eli now has an appointment at Guangxi University in Nanning, Guangxi, China; It is two hours from Vietnam. A good place for one with his interests.
Did Eli have any guanxi in order to get in at Guangxi University, PUNishment intended.
