Research Area:Politics of legal actors, institutions in the various power settings

I am a political scientist specializing in comparative politics and law & society, with a regional interest on East Asia. 
I received my Ph.D. in political science from the University of Toronto, and was also trained in law with an LL.M from UC Berkeley and LL.B from National Taiwan University. 
My work is in the interdisciplinary area between political science and law, focusing on the politics of legal actors and institutions in the various power settings. I publish in law reviews and social sciences journals. 
My current book project investigates the politics of the legal profession in the advancement and retreat of authoritarianism, using Hong Kong and Taiwan as two case studies.
