She further studied history at the University of Geneva while teaching Chinese in international organisations.
Christine joined CASP in 1985 to develop the Chinese library and contacts with the geological institutes of China. She also took an administrative role at CASP and was particularly involved in liaising with oil companies. In 1991, she initiated the China Basins Project and led the project until 1996 when she became Chief Executive. She has been Managing Director since 2003.
