I am currently a PhD Candidate in Political Science and Political Economy (PSPE) at London School of Economics and Political Science, and the student coordinator for the PSPE Doctoral Workshop. I am a visiting researcher at Washington University in St. Louis in spring, 2008.

I have an MSc in PSPE and an MRes in Political Science at LSE (both with distinction). Before coming to London, I studied at National Taiwan University, where I received a BA in Economics and a BA in Political Science. 

Using game theory and quantitative methods as tools, my research mainly focuses on information provision and acquisition and its political implication. Specifically, it is about self-censorship in autocracies and democracies. I also conduct other projects investigating the underlying causes for political decisions in various contexts.

I enjoy reading (everything with words), travelling around the world (have been to 24 countries so far), wine and spirits tasting (with WSET training), and watching many kinds of sports.
