I am Lecturer in International Tax Law (equivalent to Assistant Professor) at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies, the postgraduate law programme of the Queen Mary University of London School of Law.  I am also the Academic Programme Coordinator for the LLM in Tax Law and the LLM Research Director.

I teach international, US and Chinese tax law and Chinese business law.

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.

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