She holds an MA in Comparative Theatre Studies from the Chinese Central Academy of Drama and is currently enrolled on a collaborative PhD programme at Beijing University and the National Academy of Chinese Theatre Arts. Her PhD research concerns Chinese Film Adaptations and the Body.

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.
