For my up-to-date academic information, please see my website on

I am a PhD candidate in Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick. Before embarking on my PhD I graduated with an MSc in International Political Economy (Research) from London School of Economics. I further hold dual BAs in International Politics and Economics from Renmin University of China.



The International Political Economy of China’s Exchange Rate Policymaking

My PhD project seeks to explain China’s exchange rate policymaking in the 21st century. My research on the RMB exchange rate is closely linked to the internationalization of the RMB after the global financial crisis and possible reform of the international monetary system.

My interests therefore include International Relations, particularly the Sino-US relations; (International) Political Economy, particularly Domestic Interests & Institutions and International-Domestic Interactions; Politics of Currency, and more endemically, China's exchange rate policy and the internationalization of the RMB.

My research project is funded by the Warwick-China Scholarship Council Joint PhD Scholarships, and my supervisors are Prof. Shaun Breslin and Dr. André Broome. My fieldwork in China is funded by French Centre for Research on Contemporary China.
