I am a postgraduate student at St. Antony’s College reading for MSc Latin American Studies. I hold a BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from The University of Manchester. Born in Beijing, China, I lived in Brazil for seven years, which fostered my interest in this fascinating region. During my undergraduate studies, I had ample opportunities to explore different aspects of Latin America through coursework and research internships, culminating in a thesis focusing on empirically analysing the effects of Brazilian welfare policies on inequalities during the pandemic. I am particularly interested in the economics of Latin America.
