My research interests encompass the fields of comparative politics, democratic theories, political economy, labor studies, and social movements with a regional focus on East Asia. My research across these fields probes questions about democratic representation, particularly focusing on the causes, processes, and actors involved in social transformations such as democratization and economic development.
Currently I am working on two projects: (1) The dynamics between political parties and social movements in Asian democracies in shaping their political and economic trajectories, and (2) The new forms of labor resistance under neoliberal economic structure in technologically savvy East Asia.
Articles appeared in Studies in Comparative International Development, Critical Asian Studies, Korea Observer, Asian Survey, and Asia Pacific Forum.
