I’m a writer and researcher from Hong Kong curious about people and societies.
Having recently completed master’s degrees in international affairs at Peking University and the London School of Economics, I’ve spent the past two years exploring nationalism, ethnicity, gender, human rights and politics in China and other parts of Asia. My writing has been published by The Economist, The Diplomat, Quartz and The South China Morning Post, among others.
Proficient in Cantonese, Mandarin Chinese and conversational Japanese, I serve as Board Member and Online Editor-in-Chief at NüVoices, an international collective supporting women working on China subjects. I manage, edit, commission and produce all the content in our online magazine NüStories, which aims to amplify minority voices.
Previously, I was a staff reporter with the South China Morning Post covering Hong Kong and China. I specialised in writing narrative and multi-platform features on social issues, and covered everything from illegal rooftop housing, foreign sex workers and Sino-Korean relations to Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.
Highlights of my career include editing in a maximum security prison, trekking in the rain through abandoned ghost villages and covering massive street protests in Hong Kong and the United States.
