Personal details

Tiantian completed her BA in Trade and Economics at Beijing Technology and Business University. After graduation, she worked in an international trading company in Beijing as a PA and trading communication consultant for a year. She then returned to academia in 2007 and obtained her master’s degree, majoring in management at the University of Bristol with four ‘Distinctions’ out of the eight modules. Although Tiantian managed to build up the UK branch of a US based online education consulting company after her masters study, she still felt her interests lay in academia. She therefore started her PhD studies at the University of Leicester in October 2011, being funded through her degree as a Graduate Teaching Assistant.



Tiantian’s research interests mainly lie in relationship marketing in the professional service sector. She is particularly interested in exploring certain variables which influence the development of inter-organisational relationship (IORs), such as politics, organisation culture, human dimensions in relationships and also trust and power in relationships.
