I am a PhD Fellow at Copenhagen Business School and the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as part of a dual PhD program under the Sino-Danish Center of Education and Research (SDC). I have previously worked for the UN in New York, Nairobi, Bangkok, and Beijing, and has spent the last four years heading the international department of China’s leading think tank on sustainable finance, the International Institute of Green Finance, with which I continue to have an affiliation. My educational background includes a bachelor in International Business and Politics from CBS, a dual master in IBP & CEMS from CBS and Rotterdam School of Management, as well as a dual master in International Development from Sciences Po Paris and Peking University 
My PhD looks into governance of green finance in China. It addresses the political, economic, and financial dynamics of governing green finance in China, from policies to effects, from domestic to overseas, and from theory to practice. The issue is addressed with an interdisciplinary approach by drawing from the fields of China studies, politics & public management, finance & economics, and sustainability issues. Key research angles include: 1) How China’s green finance governance approach differs from other countries and what the impact of the approach is on policy issuance and financial institutions. 2) How and to what extent Chinese green finance policy, since its roll-out in 2016, has changed the behavior of Chinese financial institutions. 3) How China’s green finance policies affect Chinese financial institutions activities overseas.
