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 politics within authoritarian regimes such as China, given that these policies increasingly have far-reaching impacts on domestic institutions? Second, how does the interaction between the international economy and authoritarian regimes 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.
