I am an assistant professor of political science at Clark University. I received my PhD in political science from UC Berkeley in 2016, and my work focuses on policing in reform-era China, exploring themes of local governance, legitimacy, and authoritarian control. My new book, Policing in the Shadow of Protest, is forthcoming with Cornell University Press. My academic articles have appeared in Comparative Politics, the China Quarterly, Asian Survey, Europe-Asia Studies, China Law and Society Review, and PS: Political Science and Politics. More digestible bits of my research have also appeared in The Economist, The Diplomat, and East Asia Forum.
