I have been based at Oxford since October 2011, prior to which I was Lecturer in International Politics at the University of Manchester, where I taught courses on East Asian security, China’s international relations, and the institutional politics of the European Union. I gained both my MPhil and PhD from the Centre of International Studies at the University of Cambridge and hold a BSc(Econ) degree from the LSE. My particular research interests include UK-China economic relations post-Brexit, EU-China relations, and the development of international regimes.
