I am a PhD researcher at UEA and the University of Copenhagen (Denmark). My research examines urban citizenship and property in Myanmar. Before joining UEA, I worked as a research assistant at the Department of Politics and Public Administration of the University of Hong Kong.

I write about development issues such as poverty reduction, gender inequality, and governance. I have contributed to East Asia Forum, the Association for Women's Rights in Development, China Economic Review, and Hong Kong Free Press.
