Peiyuan Li

Assistant Professor of Political Economy at Duke Kunshan University

My research is at the crossroads of Economic History, Political Economy, and Development Economics

I focus on the mobilization of collective actions, including revolutions, warfare, and labor strikes, from an economic perspective. I'm also interested in nation-building, inequality and mobility, technology diffusion, and text analysis.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Colorado Boulder in 2023.

My doctoral dissertation, "Collective Action in State and Society: 19th and 20th Century China," has been awarded the NSF Doctoral Dissertation Grant # 2214884
