Academic Profile

My research lies at the intersection of comparative political theory and Confucian philosophy, focusing on the Confucian justifications of political participation. I examine whether pre-Qin Confucian texts can provide a ground of justification for political participation. Previously I received an MSc in political theory from Oxford (2016), an MSc in European studies from the LSE (2014), and a Bachelor's dgree in international relations from Peking University (2013).
