Published Works

Below is a selection of my published works. I write bilingually, in both English and Chinese. I have experimented through different formats and beats but mainly focus on digital social trend, tech, and culture in China. I am also active on Twitter.

Chaoyang Trap is a newsletter that I participate in regularly, an exploration of contemporary China through its marginal subcultures, tiny obsessions, and unexpected connections.
