Prior to starting my DPhil studies, I led the development and delivery of the School's initiatives on government reform, with a focus on ASEAN+3 (China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea) countries. I was also responsible for the publication of the inaugural issue of the 'Oxford Government Review' which brings together insights from global thought leaders to find the best solutions to the most pressing policy challenges. Previously I traveled extensively across Asia and worked with national governments, international organisations, and NGOs in the region. I worked as a founding member of the Trilateral Cooperation Secretariat, the official intergovernmental organisation for China, Japan, and the ROK and managed a development fund focused on the ASEAN region at the Korean Foreign Ministry. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with Honors from Stanford University and a Master of Public Policy degree at the Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University.
