Welcome to my personal research website. I am a PhD student and an Associate Instructor in the Department of Political Science at Indiana University, Bloomington. Previously, I have received a BA in Philosophy at Tsinghua University, Beijing, and an MA in Politics at NYU. My major field of study is political theory, with emphases on theories of fear, political emotions, Marxism, critical theory, and theories of nationality. I am also trained in comparative politics as a secondary field, where my interests lie in symbolic politics in authoritarian governance. My work has appeared on Asian Journal of Political Science.

I have been a frequent contributor to public political discussions in China. My Chinese op-ed articles have appeared on thePaper.cn, Initium, CNPoliticsiAmElectionPolisJiemian.com, and other sources.
