Chinese Art and Chinese Politics

I am a lecturer for Chinese Politics at the Universidad del Pacífico in Lima (Peru) and a Guest Researcher at the CEMEAS Centre for Modern East Asian Studies, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (Germany). I work on Chinese foreign policy and diplomacy with a special focus on China's relations with Latin America.  I have been doing work related to China for over 30 years: after a business career in auctioneering, art and design manufacturing in the UK and China, I turned to teaching and research in Colombia and the United States. Following a postdoc at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, I was a 2018-2019 Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC.  In 2020 I joined Semester at Sea on their last round-the-world voyage before the Pandemic. I am now based in Germany and on this site I present an outline of my research, publications, and other interests.
