I currently focus on researching and writing. I am Research Associate at the Centre of Taiwan Studies, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London (2013-present); Non-Resident Senior Fellow at the China Policy Institute, University of Nottingham (2014-present); and Research Fellow, European Research Centre on Contemporary Taiwan (ERCCT), Tubingen University (2015-present).
I joined the European Association of Taiwan Studies (EATS) and became its Secretary-General in 2012. During my time as EATS Secretary-General (2012-2018), with the support of the EATS Board members we launched EATS News in 2013, EATS Library Research Grant in 2014, EATS Research Project in 2014, and EATS Book Launch in 2015. With support from colleagues in Taiwan and in Europe, we have established a new peer-reviewed academic journal, International Journal of Taiwan Studies (IJTS), launched in March 2018. I am now the founding Editor-in-Chief of IJTS.
