I study economic development in East Asia, history and sociology of science in China and Germany, and modern intellectual history. I was previously a Pforzheimer Fellow at the Harvard University Archives and editor at the Harvard International Review. I have also worked at think tanks in Washington, DC, and with the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School and the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University. In my studies on the history of chemistry and physics, I worked with papers of Lise Meitner, James Franck, Fritz Haber, Albert Einstein, Max Planck, and other notable scholars of the early twentieth century period.

I am currently a fellow in the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government at Harvard Kennedy School. I am also a visiting fellow in the East Asian Institute at the National University of Singapore and the East Asian Bureau of Economic Research at the Australian National University, an associate in research at the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies at Harvard University, and a member of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations.
