Jeroen Groenewegen majored in Chinese Languages and Cultures at Leiden University and is an interpreter at Chinese cultural events in the Netherlands. His main interest is in pop, rock, and folk music, which he attempts to satisfy in his PhD project "The Performance of Identity in Chinese Popular Music" (LIAS, Leiden University), supported by the Hulsewé Wazniewski Foundation.
