I am a sociologist and China expert trained at Sciences Po, Oxford, and the ANU. My research and thesis topic more broadly analyses the consequences of social mobility in terms of personal experience, sense of identity and social relationships.
Concurrently with academic research, I have worked as a contributor and policy analyst for several research institutes, including China Analysis, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and China Policy. I regularly contribute to Oxford Analytica and the Economist Intelligence Unit on projects pertaining to Chinese politics and society.
Ph.D. thesis topic: Social mobility and entrepreneurship in the Chinese countryside. Case study focuses on entrepreneurs in Henan, Taiqian (台前县). It seeks to examine who could become an entrepreneur and how at different stages since the 1980s.
