Writer, scholar and researcher.
I am a writer, scholar and researcher. Coming from a scholarly background but with a passion for art and culture, I bring to my work the best of both worlds: rigorous analysis and high attention to detail. My work is multidisciplinary: I am interested in the intersections of art, development studies, political science and sociology, and this is reflective of my education, work experience and skills set.
I have written and researched extensively about civil society, non-governmental organisations, development, public health, migration and, art and museums. Problem-driven and policy relevant, my research speaks to practitioners, academics and the general public. Being bi-lingual in Chinese and English has given me the opportunity to present my work and engage with a broader audience. While my expertise in China is widely recognised, my work is comparative and international in scope.
Research, Writing, Analysis
In-depth research, rigorous analysis and an engaging narrative are the foundations of impactful writing. I begin by asking the right questions and understand my audience to craft the perfect piece.
Cataloguing is an indispensable part of managing a collector, gallery or museum’s main asset, the collection. I engage with the collection and in-depth research to appreciate its value, in order, to catalogue and give context to each object as it relates to the collection and to the broader material cultural history.
Teaching, Instruction, Presentation
As a researcher and writer, the ability to engage, share and learn from others is one of the most rewarding experiences. With ten years of teaching, instruction and presentation experience, I ensure the right message is directed at the right audience.
