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 whether, when, and how persuasive communications influence 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 2020-2021 job market. My job market paper uses a randomized field experiment during a national election to examine the impact of China's overseas media operations on voters outside the mainland.
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.
