International and Comparative Political Economy of Development
I am an Associate Professor (tenured) of Political Science at Temple University. I am a member of the Georgetown Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues and a Global Order Visiting Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania.
My research focuses on International and Comparative Political Economy of Development. I am completing my next book, under contract with Cambridge University Press, which investigates the mediating role of market governance in the relationship between global economic integration and development outcomes in China, India, and Russia. Other ongoing projects examine China’s foreign economic engagement and its political impact on the developing world; and the political economy of identity in the global era.
My first book, China’s Regulatory State: A New Strategy for Globalization (Cornell University Press/Cornell Studies in Political Economy, 2011) examines the politics of market reform and evolving government-business relations across industries in post-Mao China. Numerous academic and policy journals have reviewed the book.
Scholarly journals, such as Comparative Political Studies and Governance, have also published my research. The Economist, Foreign Affairs, National Public Radio (NPR), Inside Higher Ed, The Huffington Post, and The Washington Post have featured my work; and I have testified in Congress in front of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.
I have conducted in-depth fieldwork in Asia (including China and India), Mexico, and Russia. Previously I lectured as a Visiting Professor at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico and served as Residential Research Faculty Fellow at the Institute of East Asian Studies and Visiting Scholar at the Center for the Study of Law & Society, U.C. Berkeley. I also served as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Southern California, and conducted research as a Fulbright Scholar at the Institute of World Economics and Politics, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in Political Science in my areas of research expertise. This include lectures, seminars, and capstone classes on political economy of development, globalization and the state, comparative politics of developing countries, China politics and society, and Evidence and Knowledge, a Political Science undergraduate major requirement, which surveys social science research methods.
