About Me

I study the strategies authoritarian regimes employ to perpetuate their rule, including censorship, redistribution, and responsiveness, and how technology facilitates and hinders these strategies. I focus primarily on China, and use methods of automated content analysis and experiments to measure and examine different components of these strategies.
