I have great interest in the field of international economic law. My research focuses on the laws of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Customs law especially trade remedies, free trade agreements, Chinese commercial law, China’s regulations of international trade and investment, China’s integration into the international and regional economic order. I have published widely on these topics in a range of top international and domestic journals such as American Journal of International Law, Journal of International Economic Law, World Trade Review, Journal of World Trade, International & Comparative Law Quarterly, Leiden Journal of International Law, the China Quarterly, Melbourne Journal of International Law, the World Economy, Australian Law Journal, Chinese Journal of Comparative Law, and Tsinghua China Law Review. My work has been cited widely, including in European Parliament briefings, reports of the Parliament of Australia, Australia’s Productivity Commission, US Congressional Research Services and World Economic Forum as well as by leading scholars in my field.

The CIBEL Centre is a university funded long term and strategic initiative to enhance research strength in the areas of international business and economic law of relevance to China in the twenty-first century.

Globally, I am currently Co-Secretary of the Society of International Economic Law (SIEL), one of the world’s leading organisations for academics and academically-minded practitioners and officials in international economic law: http://www.sielnet.org/. I am also a member of the editorial board of the World Trade Review, one of the top journals in my field established at the initiative of the WTO.
