Dr. Wright earned his Ph.D. in East Asian Studies at Princeton University in 1993. His research interests focus on diplomacy and warfare in imperial China and the conquest dynasties (Kitan, Jurchen, Tangut, Mongol, and Manchu) that ruled some or all of China for over two-thirds of the last thousand years of imperial China's history. His current research is on the Mongols' development and use of naval forces for their thirteenth-century conquest of China.
