What are you research interests?

My research interests include public opinion, social movements, Chinese politics, and quantitative methods.

How did you become interested in political sociology and social movements?

I am interested in PSSM studies because as a scholar born and raised in China, I am curious of how it successfully maintained the “authoritarian resilience” as Andrew Nathan termed.

Why does studying political sociology and/or social movements matter?

I believe PSSM research matter as it helps us to see what kind of social contexts we are living in and what our best strategies are as citizens.
