zhuI am an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Political Science and Asian Studies at the Pennsylvania State University. My research interests focus on the politics of globalization and development. In particular, my work addresses three related topics: the political economy of foreign direct investment inflows, multinational production and governance, and emerging market multinational corporations. My work has appeared in the American Journal of Political Science, Comparative Politics, and International Studies Quarterly.

I hold an M.A. degree in East Asian Studies from Yale University and a Ph.D. degree in Political Science from Columbia University. Prior to joining Penn State, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Princeton-Harvard China and the World Program (Harvard University). During the 2013-2014 academic year, I was an Associate Visiting Research Scholar at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance, Princeton University.
