I am a researcher and analyst of Chinese politics, society and foreign policy, and a freelance Chinese-English translator. I am co-author of the book China and the New Maoists (Zed Books, 2016) with Kerry Brown.
I am currently based in Sydney, Australia, and lived in Beijing for three years.
In 2014, I graduated from Peking University with a Master of International Relations (Diplomacy) on a full Chinese Government Scholarship. My coursework and thesis were completed entirely in Mandarin Chinese. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts (Languages) from the University of Sydney with majors in Chinese Studies and Arabic Language, Literature and Culture.
My analysis of Chinese politics and diplomacy has appeared in The Australian Financial Review, World Politics Review, The Diplomat, Lowy Interpreter and China Policy Institute: Analysis, among others.
