Eva Xiao is a reporter based in Beijing. At Agence France-Presse (AFP), she covers a broad range of topics, including politics, business, tech, culture, and human rights.

In the nearly five years that she has lived in China, Eva has written extensively on technology, society, and politics in the country, from bitcoin miners in Inner Mongolia to the systematic destruction of mosques in Xinjiang.

When she’s not running around covering protests and state visits, or diving into a long-form feature story, Eva also co-hosts a bi-weekly podcast called Digitally China on China’s vibrant and fast-growing tech industry.

Before AFP, she wrote about China's tech and startup sector for Tech in Asia and Technode.

She has also freelanced for LongHash, a data journalism startup that tracks global blockchain and cryptocurrency trends.
