Kam’s transdisciplinary research examines colonial architecture, their productions and legacies in the post-colonial eras in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Alongside architecture and their spatial politics, she is interested in the trajectories of design/culinary ideas between Europe/China and Japan/Hong Kong/Taiwan. Her teaching interests range from architectural/design/art history and theory, colonial representations in various cultural forms, Hong Kong/Taiwan Studies, research methodology and foodways.
