My research interests lie at the intersection of international and comparative political economy, with an emphasis on China and the developing world. Two broad questions define my research agenda. First: how do international economic policies affect policymaking in authoritarian regimes such as China? Second, how does the interaction between the international economy and authoritarian politics affect firm strategies and public opinion?
I hold a PhD in Public Policy from Harvard University (2017), an MPA in International Development from the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University (2011) and a BA (Honors, Distinction) in International Relations and Economics from Stanford University (2002). Apart from research on globalization and China, I have also worked in the public and non-governmental sectors on a range of issues including economic development, international security policy, global governance and governance innovations.
