I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego. In September 2022, I will join Harvard University‘s Inequality in America Initiative as a Postdoctoral Fellow.

My research lies at the intersection of International Relations and Race and Ethnic Politics. In my dissertation, I examine anti-Asian racism and the racial politics of U.S.-China relations, with a focus on public opinion. I use statistical analyses of public opinion surveys, survey experiments, and text analyses. I also have research projects examining race and racism in International Relations, public opinion in China, and Asian American politics. My work has been published in Annual Review of Political Science and Political Science Quarterly.

My research has been funded by the 2020-21 APSA (previously NSF) Dissertation Improvement Grant, Rapoport Dissertation Fellowship, 2019-20 IGCC Herb York Dissertation Fellowship, and multiple grants from the 21st Century China Center.

I am interested in teaching courses on Race and Racism in International Relations, U.S.-China Relations, Asian American Politics, and Survey and Experimental Methods.

I hold an M.A. in Political Science from the University of California, San Diego and a B.A. in Government and Asian Studies, with distinctions, from Cornell University.
