I study comparative and international political economy, international law and organizations, economic history, and quantitative methods. My works are published in Journal of Conflict Resolution, Review of International Organizations, International Relations of the Asia-Pacific, and China: An International Journal. One of my dissertation chapters received the Bryan Jones Award for the best graduate student paper at the Department of Political Science, Texas A&M University. In 2019, my project was funded by the Japanese Studies Fellowship, Japan Foundation.
