His area of study in Oxford will be the Early Modern Period, with a focus on Elizabethan drama.


Born in Guangdong, Edgar attended the English School affiliated to the Guangdong University of Foreign Studies for his high school education. After obtaining a High School Diploma, he was admitted to Peking University to pursue BA studies in English.
