Personal profile

Dr. King is a Senior Lecturer in East Asian Political Economy. A specialist in Chinese International Political Economy and International Relations, with specific reference to monetary and financial development and currency internationalisation, regionalisation and economic policy-making, she received her DPhil from the University of Oxford.

Her current work on Chinese Financial Liberalisation examines its path of financial reform in Economic restructuring, focusing on the role of Renminbi currency hubs and offshore RMB markets (namely Taiwan, the City of London and Hong Kong) as a means of currency internationalisation. It also examines instruments adopted by the Chinese state and banking system to manage and develop its Monetary policy and capital account -- to manage risks (ie. debt) with growth (ie. ODI). Of further interest are the role of bonds, CDs, institutional and private investor schemes and capital markets in foreign economic policy.

She also works on Sino-UK economic policy as part of her interest in Sino-EU relations, as well as Taiwan-China political economic relations--with particular reference to the role of business stakeholders in economic and foreign policy development. 

She has worked with both government and industry actors, including Standard Chartered Bank, Deutsche Bank, the Bank of Japan, the Central Bank of China, UK Cabinet Office, as well as the MOD and the Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
