研究テーマ

Political origins and consequences of economic development and inequality; democratic transition and dysfunction; political attitudes and behavior

My research interests lie at the intersections of comparative politics, political economy, and East Asian politics. My research examines the political origins and consequences of economic development and inequality. Specifically, I am interested in elucidating the conditions under which economic inequality becomes politically salient and the mechanisms of how inequality and development affect political attitudes and behavior and the quality of democracy including democratic discontent. I utilize mixed methods, including lab and field experiments, primary surveys, interviews, ethnography, and comparative historical analysis based on in-depth qualitative fieldwork.
