I am an Assistant Professor at the School of International Relations and Public Affairs (SIRPA) of Fudan University. I am also a Non-Resident Research Fellow with the TOChina Hub and the Head of Research for the TOChina Hub’s ChinaMed Project. I am also a member of the Editorial Team of OrizzonteCina.
With a focus on China and Sino-Middle Eastern relations, my research seeks to explain how a rising power’s foreign and security policy is shaped by its own domestic politics as well as that of other countries.
At SIRPA, the subjects that I teach include foreign policy analysis, Chinese diplomacy, as well as academic publishing.
I am also a reviewer for International Security, International Affairs, International Studies Quarterly, Asia Policy, Asian Security, Journal of Strategic Studies, Journal of Contemporary China, Cambridge Review of International Affairs, International Politics, The International Spectator, Italian Political Science Review, Armed Forces & Society, and The China Review. I also review book manuscripts for Oxford University Press, Columbia University Press and Australia National University Press.
