Contacting me:

I studied sociology at Renmin University of China before I worked in China's post and telecom industry for a number of years. I then studied at Keele University for both MA and PhD degrees in HRM and Industrial Relations before I was employed as a lecturer at Middlesex University in London. In 2010 I returned to Keele Management School as a lecturer in HRM.

I am an Academic Assoc. CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development).

My main research interests include health professionals' pay in China's public hospitals, the emerging Chinest trade unionism and migrant workers in China.

I have recently been awarded a £105,873 Leverhulme International Network grant for an 18-month project ‘Collective pay determination and changing labour relations in globalized China’ http://www.keele.ac.uk/chineselabour
