Personal profile

Research interests

I joined the Faculty of Law in 2005. Prior to joining Bond, I undertook teaching or research appointments with the University of Washington, International University of Japan, Waseda University, National University of Singapore, and University of Tokyo. I have also been a Visiting Scholar to Harvard Law School. I am an attorney-at-law and speak and write Chinese fluently.

My primary research interests are in comparative, international, and interdisciplinary studies.

To date, I have focused my research on Australian, Chinese, Japanese and US laws, and in the areas of foreign direct investment, labour and employment, dispute resolution, law and society, commercial law, legal education, health care, competition law, the judiciary, international trade, and consumer protection.

My research has been largely policy-oriented, either on my own or in collaboration with scholars from the disciplines of management, social policy, and economics.

I would like to contribute to the improvement of regulatory systems through recommendations based on my research work.

Statement for HDR students

I am interested in supervising research on Chinese law, comparative law, and international law.
