I am the Director of Global Policy at the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). TIA is a U.S.-based industry association which advocates for companies that enable high-speed communications networks and develops standards for the ICT sector.
Prior to this role, I was a Director in the China Practice of Albright Stonebridge Group, a strategic advisory and commercial diplomacy firm headquartered in Washington, DC.
I also managed the U.S. China Business Council’s work on automotive policy from the Council’s Shanghai office. I worked as a consultant in Beijing and Shanghai, and in communications at a lobbying organization in Washington, DC. I first went to China in 1997 and spent seven years living, studying, and working in the country.
I hold a B.A. from Haverford College, an M.A. from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), and a certificate in Chinese studies from the Hopkins Nanjing Center at Nanjing University. I also serve as a member of the Haverford College Corporation, the Board of Directors and Executive Committee of the U.S. Information Technology Office in Beijing, the U.S.-China Futures Project, and the American National Standards Institute’s International Policy Advisory Group.
