I am an assistant professor of political science and Asian studies at Elizabethtown College. I study media politics and public opinion, with a focus on China. Currently I use ethnographic fieldwork, content analysis, and experiment to understand the evolving role of the media in authoritarian politics and governance. My work has been published or is forthcoming in Political Research Quarterly, The China Quarterly, Modern China, Journal of East Asian Studies, and Journal of Contemporary China.
I earned my PhD in Political Science from the University of Kansas, MA in Political Science from Marquette University, and BA in International Politics from the University of International Relations in Beijing.
