Work 💻

For over 4 years, I worked with the fin-tech start-up Transferwise (now Wise), mainly in their KYC department. More recently I spent 3 months working with Deel as a KYC Specialist with the aim to create and optimize Compliance related processes while empowering global and remote workforces.

I have extensive experience in both Asian and European KYC procedures, and I was a Team Leader for 2 years, managing a total of 20+ people, and training many more.

Currently, I dedicate my time to write about China's tech scene, and rural development projects, with The China Guys team, and as a freelance writer for Xolo.

About 👋

I have attained a B.A in Asian Studies with the University of Lisbon, and won a one-year scholarship for academic excellence with Confucius Institute 里斯本大学孔子学院 where I had the opportunity to study in Tianjin Foreign Studies University 天津外国语大学. Currently, I am an MA graduate student in Global Diplomacy: East Asia with SOAS University of London.

For the past 7 years, I have lived in 6 different countries - Portugal, China, Bulgaria, Hungary, Estonia, Thailand - and I am a big fan of working with international and remote teams.

You can usually find me after work having a walk while listening to my podcasts playlist or watching my favorite football team in a small pub with friends.
