He has published a book on pilgrimages to the sacred Mount Tai during the late imperial period: Identity Reflections: Pilgrimages to Mount Tai in Late Imperial China (Harvard University Press, 2004). In addition, he has also worked on modern meanings of the mountain. His current project is examining the introduction of the chili pepper into China.
