This is Qin Chen typing from Shanghai. Qin is pronounced as keen, as in I'm very keen to meet you.
I joined TechNode as a news editor in 2019 and later became the managing editor, helping readers around the world understand major moves and trends in China's tech industry. Before that, I was a reporter at Inkstone, a China-focused news site from the South China Morning Post. I spent two years helping English readers make sense of complicated social issues and policies in China.
Previously, I worked for five years in US media companies. I was a senior video producer at The New Yorker, a documentary producer at CNBC, and a front-end designer at the San Jose Mercury News.
I'm born and raised in Shanghai and studied at Sichuan University and the University of Miami. When I'm not typing, I read, write, meditate, skateboard, and take photos. She/her.
