Yanjun LIU

I am a PhD candidate in Political Science
at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Previously, I received my double bachelor's degrees in Political Science & Public Administration and Economics from Peking University and a master's degree in International Strategy & Development from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.

My research interests include public opinion and political behavior, authoritarian politics, political economy, political communication, and international security with a regional focus on China and East Asia. Methodologically, I am interested in causal inference and mixed methods.

My dissertation, Manufacturing A Divided Leviathan: Redistribution, Information, and Authoritarian Rule in China, studies how China's redistributive public policy and information management disaggregate the multi-layered political authorities in mass public’s political perceptions and actions, thereby entrenching top-down authoritarian rule.

My teaching interests include comparative politics, international relations, political economy, research methods, and politics and international relations of China and East Asia.
