She holds an MA in Comparative Theatre Studies from the Chinese Central Academy of Drama.

For UCL’s 2013 Festival of the Arts, on 14th May, she arranged a showing of Xu Haofeng’s The Sword Identity, followed by a discussion with the director about the changing representation of the body in martial arts films.
