I am the Henry M. and Elizabeth P. Wiesenfeld Professor in Political Economy at the Sociology Department and the Paul H Nitze School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University.
My scholarly interest includes global political economy, protest, nation-state formation, social theory, and East Asian Development. I received my bachelor degree from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, my MA degree from SUNY-Binghamton, and my PhD degree in Sociology from Johns Hopkins.
Prior to joining the Hopkins faculty, I taught at the Indiana University-Bloomington.
