I am a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies at the Queen Mary, University of London School of Law.  I wrote my PhD thesis on the development of the rule of law in the Chinese tax system.

I graduated from the New York University School of Law with a JD and an LLM in Taxation, and I have an MIA with a concentration in East Asian Affairs from the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. I studied Chinese at the Mandarin Training Centre of the National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei and at Capital Normal University in Beijing. I am fully proficient in Mandarin Chinese and can read and write traditional and simplified characters.

Prior to completing the PhD, I practised in New York, China and the United Kingdom, primarily in the areas of international, US and UK taxation.
