I am also Director of Studies in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, Christ’s College, University of Cambridge.

    Before joining OU, I was Senior Language Teaching Officer in the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Cambridge. Prior to that, I lectured in Chinese Studies at Lancaster University. Between 1992 and 1993, I worked for the BBC World Service as translator and presenter.
