About Me

I am an Assistant Professor at the Division of Social ScienceHong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). I graduated from the Department of Politics at New York University in 2014. Before my PhD at NYU, I studied political science, economics (B.A.) and international relations (M.S.) at Seoul National University, Korea.

My research interest centers on political economy of authoritarian regimes, with particular attention to East Asian countries including China, South Korea, and Taiwan. I have various ongoing research projects related to resource dependent economic development, historical origins of comtemporary development, and impacts of authoritarian leader’s personal background. My research appears in British Journal of Political Science and Conflict Management and Peace Science.
