Before Dr Liangni Sally Liu commences the lecture position in Massey University, she worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore (2013~2014) and the Research office of Auckland University of Technology (2011~2013). She completed her PhD at the School of Asian Studies, University of Auckland in 2011. Her research interest is in the areas of migrant transnationalism, especially Chinese migratory transnationalism. She also has broader research interests in issues that relate to ethnic relations and the media influence on ethnic relations. As an early career academic, Dr. Liu has already published a number of book chapters, and scholarly papers in a variety of highly-ranked international journals.
My research interests during the last eight years have been largely in the areas of migrant transnationalism, especially Chinese/Asian transnational migration. In a broader sense, however, I have a passion for research and theory in the area of human movement mobility, migrants’ integration issues and sexuality and interaction with host country societies. I also have an ongoing interest in issues that relate to ethnic relations between migrant minorities and mainstream/or indigenous people and media influence on ethnic relations.
