I am a Senior Lecturer in the Strategic & Defence Studies Centre at The Australian National University, with particular expertise in Chinese foreign and security policy, China-Japan relations, and the economics-security nexus in the Asia-Pacific region. In 2016, I received an Australian Research Council DECRA Fellowship (2017-2019) to investigate China’s role in shaping the post-WWII international economic order, through the lens of the Bretton Woods and Bandung conferences, held between 1944 and 1955.

My book, China-Japan Relations after World War Two: Empire, Industry and War, 1949-1971 (Cambridge University Press, 2016), explains how and why Japan became China’s most important economic partner in the aftermath of major war, and at a time when the two countries were still Cold War opponents. The book is based on hundreds of declassified documents from the Chinese Foreign Ministry Archive, gathered during fieldwork in China between 2008 and 2012.

I received my D.Phil in International Relations from the University of Oxford, where I studied as a Rhodes Scholar. My doctoral thesis was awarded Oxford’s 2013 Dasturzada Dr Jal Pavry Memorial Prize. I completed my M.Phil in Modern Chinese Studies at the University of Oxford, and B.A. Hons (First Class) in International Studies and B.Bus in International Business at the University of South Australia.
