I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego.

I study Race, Ethnicity, and Politics and International Relations. In my dissertation, I examine the causes and political consequences of anti-Asian racism in the United States. I also have research projects examining race and racism in International Relations and public opinion in China.

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.

In Summer 2020, I work as a teaching assistant for POLI100O: Perspectives on Race and as an undergraduate mentor for the Summer Training Academy for Research Success (STARS).
