My research interests include economic sociology, organizational theory and non-market strategy. I investigate networking strategies of state-owned enterprises and tactics for non-state enterprises to overcome disadvantages in emerging markets. I received my doctoral degree in sociology at Cornell University. Prior to Cornell, I received B.A. in sociology and economics from Tsinghua University.
I received the honor to attend SASE Early Career Workshop at Doshisha University (Kyoto, Japan) in June, 2018.
I attended the OMT Paper Development and Reviewing Workshop for the manuscript "Network formation in a new market: strategic resource dependence or prior legitimacy" (with Abdullah Shahid) at UBC Sauder School of Business in Feburary, 2018.
