I am a third year Ph.D. student in Sociology and am affiliated with the Paul and Marcia Wythes Center on Contemporary China. Before entering graduate school, I was an East Studies major in the class of 2015, and I worked as an Ito Fellow at the University of Tokyo and a management consultant at BCG. I work on the sociology of science and knowledge production, on a theory of discipline (broadly construed), and how the rest of the world views China's rise. Outside of my more formal academic work, I am particularly interested in anthropology, regional studies, and the intersection of biology and society. I also watch a lot of foreign film, read a lot of fiction, and enjoy exploring Princeton's hidden nooks and crannies. Please do not hesitate to say hello!
