She was previously Senior Lecturer in Law and Programme Leader for LLM Information Rights & Practice at the Northumbria University. Before that she was Associate Professor of Civil and Commercial Law and Director of the Law Internationalisation at the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics.
Her academic journey started in 1998 when she was awarded a governmental scholarship to undertake her Masters at Queen's University Belfast and researched information technology and the law with a focus on intellectual property rights in China. She later read law with Professor Hector MacQueen and received her PhD at the University of Edinburgh Law School.
Guan has enlightening academic, managerial and advisory experiences in both the UK and China. Holding an insight about the rule of law in China from a commercial law perspective and its relevance to the rest of the world, her research has a strong theme of comparative intellectual property and technology. Her current projects include the legal status of artificial intelligence, and the technological response to social media, copyright and censorship.
