I am a member of our Corporate & Commercial Group based in Shanghai. I focus on the automotive and aviation sectors, as well as the general manufacturing industry. My practice covers commercial, regulatory and transactional issues for foreign investment in China.

I joined Bird & Bird in 2016, and started out in the commercial team. I was working for automotive clients on various matters such as contract reviews, supply chain and quality disputes, regulatory compliance and transactional projects.

I have since gained a broader range of experience, advising clients in different sectors such as aviation, media & sports and technology, where I can extend my interest in the supply chain study to the consumer or end-user level. I am also interested in the controversial issues surrounding manufacturing digitalisation and AI.
