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 and an Advanced Certificate in China Studies from Columbia University’s East Asian Institute.  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 read and write traditional and simplified characters.  I wrote my PhD on the Chinese income tax system at Queen Mary University of London

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