I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2013, and I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in Strategic Management at the University of Toronto, Rotman School of Management.
My comparative politics and public policy research explores accountability in the unfavorable terrain of authoritarian regimes and employment in the developing world. Specifically, I study political institutions in contemporary China and the regulation of labor standards under globalization. My research was recently published in the Quarterly Journal of Political Science.
I have worked and studied in China (primarily Guangzhou, Changsha, and Beijing) for over five years, including fellowships under the U.S. Fulbright Program and the Yale-China Association. I am also affiliated with The Governance Project at Stanford University's Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law.
