Forbidden City

I am a post-doctoral research fellow at Stanford University. I received a PhD in Political Science from the Pennsylvania State University in 2019. I will be an assistant professor in Politics and Public Affairs at Princeton University from mid-2021.

I study the politics of information and political repression in autocracies with a current focus on digital surveillance. While I have published on authoritarian regimes from a comparative perspective, I have expertise in Chinese Politics. Methodologically, I am interested in experiments, causal inference, and game theory. My work has been published, or will soon appear, in journals including the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, and the Journal of Comparative Economics.
