I am an Assistant Professor at the School of International Relations and Public Affairs (SIRPA) of Fudan University. I am also a Non-Resident Research Fellow with the TOChina Hub and the Head of Research for the TOChina Hub’s ChinaMed Project.

My research revolves around Chinese foreign policy and China’s role in the wider Mediterranean region, with a special focus on Sino-Middle Eastern relations. More broadly, I am interested in the factors that shape the policy-making process and the use of force vis-à-vis non-traditional security threats.

At SIRPA, the subjects that I teach include foreign policy analysis, Chinese diplomacy, as well as academic writing.
