I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Economics Department, University of Colorado Boulder.

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

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

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

In July 2023, I will start working as an assistant professor of political economy at Duke Kunshan University.
