I am presently a Postdoctoral Faculty Fellow at NYU's Wagner School of Public Service.
My research is motivated by questions of identity and democratic development in comparative and international politics. Specifically, I am interested in the interplay of nationalism, ethics, and political boundaries in shaping political participation in East Asia and other transitional democratic contexts.
Previously, I was selected as a Graduate Fellow at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, graduate affiliate of the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics, and Shorenstein Scholar at the Harvard Kennedy School.
I received my PhD in Politics from Princeton University, MPP from Harvard Kennedy School, and BA from Stanford University.
