Speaker

Lisa Rigoli is the Deputy Trade Attache for the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) at the US Embassy in Beijing. Prior to joining USTR, Lisa was Deputy Director of Market Access and Compliance for the Department of Commerce at the US embassy in Beijing and before that was a Trade Specialist with the China and Mongolia Office of the Department of Commerce in Washington DC. Lisa is a two-time graduate of Mason, receiving her undergraduate degree in 1997 and her JD in 2002.

Working for both the Office of the US Trade Representative and the Department of Commerce, Lisa has extensive experience working with U.S. companies operating in China and government officials on high-level bilateral trade negotiations, including the Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) and the Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT). In particular, Lisa’s work has largely focused on policy issues relating to healthcare, IPR, and innovation in China. During her talk, Lisa will share with us both her experience at Mason and her unique understanding of US-China bilateral trade relations.
