In this capacity, she also served as visiting scholar at National Taiwan University, the Australian National University and Sciences Po (Paris) Law School. She previously worked as Legal Officer in the International Committee of the Red Cross Regional Delegation for East Asia; and as a trial monitor of the Asia International Justice Initiative Trial Monitoring group. She holds a PhD in international law from Renmin University of China.
She is a core expert on the Woomera Manual on the International Law of Military Space Operations, and an Editorial Board member of the Journal of International Humanitarian Legal Studies.
As a researcher of international law, her main research areas are public international law, international criminal law, and international humanitarian law.
