I hold a PhD in Politics and Public Administration from the University of Hong Kong, an MSc in Nationalism Studies from the University of Edinburgh, and a BA in East Asian Studies from McGill University. Between 2012 and 2013, I was Visiting Associate Student and Doctoral Fellow at the Institute of Sociology, Academia Sinica.
Since 2014, I have served as Secretary of Research Committee no. 50 (Politics of Language) of the International Political Science Association (IPSA). In addition to my research on language politics, I work on the electoral determinants of cultural recognition in a comparative perspective, and on democratization and identity politics in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
