Liam Elliot Brady
Liam is a graduate from Cambridge University’s Chinese Studies programme and is currently reading for his master’s degree in History and International Relations at the London School of Economics. He first travelled to China in 2016, visiting Chengdu, Chongqing and Beijing as part of an immersive language exchange programme. This visit ignited an enduring fascination with China’s language and culture, one that he maintains to this day. In 2022, he underwent a year-long intensive Mandarin course in Taiwan, where he also volunteered as an instructor for a local educational NGO. Prior to Cambridge, he achieved the highest mark in the country in Mandarin Chinese Pre-U in 2019. He has also co-founded a China-oriented journal; served on the committee of a China-focused speaker’s society; and written a regular column on the intricacies of Taiwan’s food culture. Academics aside, he has an avid interest in Chinese literature, history, food and football (“soccer”), all of which he would be delighted to talk about at length over a plate of fish-fragrant aubergine, a bowl of sesame-sauce noodles, or a game of mah-jong!
