I am currently a PhD Candidate in Political Science and Political Economy (PSPE) at London School of Economics and Political Science. I will join NYU Abu Dhabi as a postdoctoral research associate in September, 2019.
I was a visiting researcher at Washington University in St. Louis in spring, 2018. I participated the EITM Summer Institute at UC Berkeley in 2017.
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 media and politics in democracies and autocracies. Specifically, it is about the information problem faced by dictators and voters. I also conduct other projects investigating underlying causes of political decisions in various contexts.
I devote myself to sharing new insights from political science research to the public. With a group of young Taiwanese political scientists, I founded Who Governs Taiwan? , which is now one of the most visited popular science websites in Taiwan. Recently, we published a book on electoral democracy (in Mandarin).
I enjoy reading (everything with words), travelling around the world (have been to 28 countries so far), wine and spirits tasting (with WSET training), and watching many kinds of sports.
