Hi! I am an assistant professor of political science at the University of California, Merced. I study comparative politics and political economy with a current focus on authoritarianism, news media, public opinion, and Chinese politics, using both game-theoretic modeling and survey/experimental methods. My single-authored papers have been published or accepted in the American Political Science Review, British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Politics, Journal of Theoretical Politics, and Political Research Quarterly.
