Personal details

BBA (CUHK), LLM (Lancaster), DPhil (Oxon), FHEA

I obtained my undergraduate degree in accounting and law with first class honours from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, LLM with distinction from Lancaster University and doctorate from the University of Oxford. I was a Sir Edward Youde Scholar and recipient of the Confucius Institute Highly Commended Prize (for my research in Chinese law). Prior to my lectureship with Leicester, I taught at Oxford, Exeter and Universität Osnabrück.

I am a reviewer of the Journal of International Trade Law and Policy and have reviewed for the Journal of Corporate Law Studies. Also, I am an affiliate of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, member of Beta Gamma Sigma (an honour society for business scholars) and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
