My research interests include economic sociology, organizational theory and non-market strategy. I investigate the network strategies of state-owned enterprises in emerging financial markets and how state ownership, firm-bank networks, and the interplay of these political and business structures shape the outcomes when firms issue new debts.I received my doctoral degree in sociology at Cornell University. Prior to Cornell, I received B.A. in sociology and economics from Tsinghua University.
