About me

About me

I'm Rachelle, or you can call me by my Chinese name Ruxin. Born and raised in southern China, I’m a person who loves reading Chinese literature and sharing the joy of reading. Having obtained an MA in classical Chinese literature in China, I went to London in 2013 to pursue an understanding of Chinese languages and culture in a cross-cultural context. After seven years of studying, living and teaching in the UK, I got my PhD in Chinese and Inner Asian Languages and Culture at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. It has been an amazing experience discussing and enjoying Chinese literature with friends, students, and colleagues from all around the world.


My speciality lies in pre-modern China, but as a former university teacher and a private tutor, I’ve delivered courses and tutorials in both classical and modern Chinese languages and literature. I’ve also worked for museums, galleries, publishers, and individuals on short-term and long-term projects that are related to Chinese history and literature in different ways.
