Teaching Fellow East Asian and International Political Economy, University of Bristol
Specialist in Chinese and Greater Chinese Political Economy and Economic Development, in particular China's Financial reform.
Currently Teaching Fellow in East Asian and International Political Economy
My research examines the process of Chinese Financial Liberalisation, in particular the role of Renminbi currency hubs and offshore RMB markets (namely Taiwan, Singapore and the City of London) as a means of currency internationalisation. This comparative project examines, from the perspective of State-non-state actor relations, three fundamental areas: the political drivers behind Chinese financial sector reform; issues of risk as take up in China's financial system deepens; growing porosity of China's policy sector.
I also work extensively on Sino-UK economic policy as part of my interest in Sino-EU relations and my comparative research on theories of integration and regionalism in East Asia and Europe.
