JN CHIEN
WRITING

* Due to the increasing repression of political expression by the Hong Kong government after passage of the National Security Laws in 2020, I have adopted the pen name JN Chien for public facing work considered politically sensitive. Relevant work that has been published under that name will be noted in parenthesis where appropriate.
