I study International Relations and Race, Ethnicity, and Politics. In my dissertation, I examine the role of anti-Asian racism in contemporary U.S.-China relations with a focus on the racialization of American public opinion on China. 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 and public opinion in China. My research is forthcoming 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, 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, International Relations of the Asia Pacific, and Asian American Politics.
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.
