I am a Senior Lecturer and Assistant Director of the Data Analytics and Policy Program and a Faculty Affiliate at the SNF Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University. My research interests focus on authoritarian nostalgia and related political behavior in post-authoritarian democracies. My regional focus is on South Korea and other Asian democracies. I received my PhD in Political Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2022. My research has appeared in Party Politics, Journal of East Asian Studies, International Journal of Press/Politics, Social Science Quarterly, and International Studies Quarterly.
My research has received support from various sources, including a Faculty Grant Award from the SNF Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University, a Taiwan Fellowship from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Taiwan, a Doctoral Fellowship from the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange, and multiple institutions at the University of Illinois.
