With three years of service for the world’s best-known monitor of labor practices in China, China Labor Watch (CLW), Gia has worked in factories as a participant-observer to document labor practices. Based on her written accounts of those experiences, CLW issued reports detailing the results of her work, and news outlets including The Guardian, Reuters, Der Spiegel, and Bloomberg disseminated her findings. 

In 2020, she enrolled as a master’s student in the Penn State University program for Labor and Global Workers’ Rights. She intends to use her degree in a position researching the lives of workers in global supply chains.
