Manqian Yao was a winter intern at the O’Neill Institute.

Having witnessed the great changes viruses can bring to lifestyles, and the situations resulting from different approaches and policies, Yao became interested in health and human rights, infectious diseases, and comparative health law and policy.

Prior to joining O’Neill, Yao has worked for KWM, Zhonglun and Pinsent Masons as an intern, where she researched public international law and regulatory issues. She has also joined research programs related to public international law and environmental law, and participated in moot courts as both a researcher and an oralist, researching on topics, including corruption and bribery, human rights, and public international law.

Yao is currently a LL.M. student in China University of Political Science, majoring in international law.
