I am broadly interested in the international relations (IR) of East Asia. My research focuses on applying and testing such IR theories as status, authority, and legitimacy; power transition; and socialization processes, especially in regard to Chinese foreign and security policy.
Some of my current research and publications on international security include: China's evolving approach to international peacekeeping and intervention; conventional arms and export controls; the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT); China-Africa security relations; territorial conflicts in the South China Sea and China-ASEAN dynamics; and multilateral security organizations in the Asia-Pacific region.
