Welcome! I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Government at Harvard University, where I research international relations and Chinese foreign policies. My dissertation explores foreign economic policies in Chinese history.

In addition, I work with excellent colleagues on a variety of other topics. These include tracking China's foreign economic, diplomatic and military activities, and creating new sources of observational and experimental data in international political economy.
