Dr Hung received her PhD in East Asian Studies from the Australian National University. With a background training in Sociology, she is generally interested in issues on state-society relations in China and in particular the impacts on the everyday lived experience of the Chinese people. Her newest project looks at cross-border activities in the Pearl River Delta region, paying particular attention to the development and inner workings of a shadow economy. Her research papers have appeared in Journal of Gambling Studies, Social Indicators Research, Communist and Post-Communist Studies, and Modern China, among others.
