I am a Ph.D. candidate in International Relations / Political Science, affiliated with the Centre for International Environmental Studies, at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID), in Geneva, Switzerland. 

My research interests lie in transnational governance and environmental politics, particularly private governance initiatives that address the world's sustainability challenges, with a regional focus on China. My research is funded by Doc.CH Fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation. My work has been published in Review of International Political Economy, Global Environmental Politics, VOLUNTAS: International Journal of Voluntary and Nonprofit Organizations, and Rising Powers Quarterly

Besides my research, I am also a writer for the Earth Negotiations Bulletin, attending various multilateral environmental meetings. I like thinking, talking, and doing sports.
