Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the V-Dem Institute at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden.
I work in the field of comparative politics. My research focuses on elite politics and institutions in authoritarian regimes, both globally and sometimes with a regional focus on China/East Asia. I also work on processes of regime change including autocratization and democratization. 
I received my PhD in Government and Public Administration from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2022.
My academic work has been published in journals including Policy & Politics, Democratization (x2), and Journal of East Asian Studies
I am also a Co-Founder and Co-Organiser of the Authoritarian Political Systems Group (APSG).
