I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Political Science and Social Data Analytics dual degree program at the Pennsylvania State University. Prior to arriving at Penn State, I got a master’s degree from Purdue University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Nottingham Ningbo China. I expect to graduate in Spring 2022 .

My substantive research and teaching interests are in the politics in autocracies, with a current focus on party institutionalization and corruption. While I conduct research on authoritarian regimes from a comparative perspective, I have specific expertise in Chinese Politics. Methodologically, my research focuses on computational social science, natural language processing in English and Chinese (e.g., text mining, quantitative text analysis), measurement, and survey analysis.
