About me


Research on Chinese government.


I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for East and Southeast Asian Studies at Lund University since September 2014. I hold a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Copenhagen (2012). I joined Lund University on leave from a position as Associate Professor in the School of Public Administration, Sichuan University. My postdoctoral research project examines how Chinese government uses digital ICT through processes of e-monitoring and citizen empowerment to ensure administrative transparency and accountability with the goal of reducing corruption. It is based on fieldwork in various cities around China.
