I graduated from the joint school of Social Policy and Politics at the University of Bristol in 2015 before joining Hertford College, Oxford University.

I focus on the East Asian welfare regime in addition to the three main worlds of welfare capitalism, primarily on the orientalism in the analysis of the welfare system in East Asian societies as well as on the West-East dichotomy in the study of welfare institutions.

My research areas of interests also include the productivist path of welfare development in Asian developing countries and its path dependency.
