Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Government at the University of Texas at Austin. My fields of specialization are Comparative Politics and Methodology. My research interests lie in political communication, political behavior, public opinion, and Chinese politics. You can find my full C.V. in PDF format here.
My research examines the causes and consequences of political persuasion with a focus on China. I investigate the effects of persuasive communications on the behaviors and attitudes of both domestic and foreign audiences. I also analyze the conditions under which China varies persuasive messages in media broadcasting. Part of my work is forthcoming in Public Opinion Quarterly.
I am on the job market in AY 2020-2021. My job market paper (here) uses a randomized field experiment during a presidential election to examine whether and how China's overseas media operations influence voters outside its borders.
My work has received financial support from the Ward Endowed Fellowship, the Global Research Fellowship, the Texas Politics Project Research, the Julian Suez Fellowship, the Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation, and the Ministry of Education in Taiwan.
