I am a Ph.D. candidate in Politics at Princeton University. 

​I specialize in international political economy, Chinese politics, and quantitative methods. My research seeks to understand how foreign firms leverage political dynamics in host countries to influence policy outcomes.


My dissertation re-examines the relationship between asset mobility and government treatment. I put forward an alternative view that emphasizes how low asset mobility helps foreign firms gain government support.

Before coming to Princeton, I obtained an M.A. in political science from Duke University and a B.A. from Fudan University, China.
