I am an Assistant Professor of International Development at Peking University’s School of International Studies. My research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of development, political economy, and international relations.

My research focuses on understanding the role of the state in development, and addresses the question of how China’s development finance affects global order. I also study the role of public financial agencies in facilitating development assistance, export finance, and industrialization.

Prior to joining Peking University, I was a JSPS-funded Visiting Scholar at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (2017), a Pre-Doctoral Fellow at the Global Development Policy Center (2018), and was offered Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies An Wang Postdoctoral Fellowship at Harvard University (2019-2020).

I hold a Ph.D. in International Studies from University of Washington, an M.A. in Asian Studies from University of California, Berkeley, and dual bachelor’s degrees from Peking University and Waseda University.
