BA Chicago, MEcon Peking, MPhil Oxford
I am a DPhil student in International Relations (IR) at the Queen’s College, Oxford. My doctoral work explores how contestation over the status of languages affects international politics. The articles in my dissertation address several areas of interest to the IR discipline, and employ a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods. My research is supported by the University’s Clarendon Fund and by the Cyril and Phyllis Long Scholarship at the Queen’s College.
Prior to the DPhil, I completed my MPhil in International Relations with Distinction at St Peter’s College, Oxford. In addition to working as a predoctoral fellow at Yale Law School, I have assisted in conducting research at various organisations. I also hold degrees in Economics from Peking University and the University of Chicago.
