I am a doctoral researcher with diverse educational backgrounds from Taiwan and Europe (UK and the Netherlands). These studies inspired me to become a scholar in international economic law. Prior to committing myself to work in academia, I was a paralegal in BNP Paribas Cardif (multinational financial company) in Taiwan. My job responsibilities were to, firstly, review contracts and provide legal opinion. Secondly, I assisted to ensure and monitor financial compliance within the company, such as anti-money laundering and implementing good conduct policy. While I was a legal researcher in a prestigious thinktank in Taiwan, the research tasks, including writing reports and publishing research outcomes of projects in various forums, and the associated training intensified my goal to become a legal scholar. Owing to my academic enthusiasm, I started a PhD in law in January 2015 and expect to complete it in 2018.
