An expert on the political economy of East and Southeast Asia, Terry used her Abe fellowship to research and write a book on the intellectual history of the East Asian development model, How Asia Got Rich (M.E. Sharpe, 2003). She has followed developments in East Asia as a journalist, academic, and business person for more than 30 years. Based in Hong Kong since 2000, her consulting work has taken her deeply into issues of sustainability, climate change, urbanization, bioethics, and innovation in the East Asian setting. As an adjunct professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, she has taught courses in Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia (Korea and Japan) to its MBA students since 2013.
