I am a doctoral student in Area Studies (China) at Wolfson College, University of Oxford. My research project examines the significance of China-Australia relations in Chinese grand strategy through the prism of geopolitics. It is based on case-studies of China-Australia relations from 2012 to 2017. I was born in China and grew up in New Zealand. Prior to my DPhil study, I received my BSc in Global China Studies (concentration in Politics) at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (highest GPA) and my MSc in Contemporary China Studies at the University of Oxford. In addition to China-Australia relations and Asia-Pacific geopolitics, I also have secondary research interests in Hong Kong-Mainland relations, China-US relations and Chinese theories of International Relations.
