Writing

Since arriving in Taiwan, I've covered: the 2020 election, Taiwan's successful management of the coronavirus pandemic, the highest US official visit to Taiwan since the cessation of diplomatic relations, and the spillover effects of the Hong Kong protests in Taiwan.

I'll be busy finishing up my masters in the coming months, but please do still get in touch for commissions. My current research focuses on the impact of cross-Strait relations on Taiwanese identity, as well as China's politics and international relations.
