My research focuses on party politics, social movements, electoral institutions, and democratization, with a regional specialization in Latin America. My articles are published in Comparative Politics, International Political Science ReviewEuropean Political Science ReviewParty Politics, and Latin American Politics and Society.

I have field research experiences in Chile (2018), Costa Rica (2016), Panama (2016), Colombia (2015), Peru (2012), and Mexico (2010). During these field trips, I conducted interviews with legislators, party officials, and social movement activists for my research about party politics and institutional change.

Before joining NCCU, I was an adjunct instructor in the Department of Political Science at Washington & Jefferson College, U.S.A.

I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh. I hold
a BA and a MA in Political Science at National Taiwan University. I began to be interested in Latin America after a trip to Ecuador in 1999.
