I study public opinion in both autocratic and democratic contexts. My research on autocracies explores how autocrats manipulate public opinion by using media control and political rhetoric. My research on democracies studies how individuals form their attitudes toward important policy issues such as immigration, redistribution, and trade.
I hold an MPhil in Economic Research from the University of Cambridge, where I was Hughes Hall Scholar and Hong Kong Scholar. I also hold a BEcon in Economics, Politics, and Public Administration from the University of Hong Kong, where I was John Swire Scholar and Undergraduate Research Fellow.
My research has been published in Comparative Political Studies, European Union Politics, International Organization, and Political Behavior.
