Hello! I am a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) of Political Science at The Ohio State University, where my research interest centers on the intersection of comparative political economy, social policy, and political behavior in the developing countries, with the regional focus on Asia. In 2016-17, I was selected as the Chiang Ching-Kuo Doctoral Dissertation Fellow in the North America region. Currently, I am holding a predoctoral position at Denison University (OH).
My dissertation focuses on endogenous income insecurity and its effects on the welfare state foundation. To learn more about my dissertation, please see here. I am also collaborating on several research projects that examine political attitudes and behaviors across Asian countries. Topics include trade preference and nationalism, labor market transformation and political attitudes, etc. My work has appeared in the Journal of Asian and African Studies.
I hold an MA in East Asia Studies from Yale University, an MA in Political Science from National Taiwan University, and BA degrees in Economics and Political Science (double major) from National Taiwan University.
