I am an Associate Professor in Political Science at National Chengchi University,Taiwan. Before joining NCCU, I was an adjunct instructor in the Department of Political Science at Washington & Jefferson College, U.S.A.

My primary research interests include comparative politics and mass political behavior. My work focuses on party politics, social movements, electoral institutions, and democratization, with a regional specialization in Latin America and East Asia. My articles are published or forthcoming in Comparative Politics, International Political Science Review
European Political Science ReviewParty Politics, and Latin American Politics and Society.


I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh in April, 2014. I hold a BA and a MA in Political Science at National Taiwan University.

I have done field research in Chile (2018), Costa Rica (2016), Panama (2016), Colombia (2015), Peru (2012), and Mexico (2010)
. I began to be interested in Latin American politics after a trip to Ecuador in 1999.
