I am broadly interested in East Asian politics and development. Currently, I am working on a project related to party building and rural governance reform in China. 


My research has appeared in World PoliticsThe China QuarterlyThe China Journal, and Current History. 
 

I hold a B.A. from Wellesley College in Chinese Studies (2001) and a Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University (2012).
