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 China: Street-Level Cops in the Shadow of Protests, 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.
