My Story

Minglaba! Welcome to my website. I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. My research interests lie in historical political economy, education, and formal theory. Substantively, I am interested in understanding the development of education policy in colonial-era Southeast Asia and its relationship with anti-colonial resistance, focusing on British Burma. Another line of my research explores topics in international education policy, such as education efficiency and early-childhood education.

I received my undergraduate degree in economics and finance at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). Before my graduate studies, I worked for one year as a researcher at CUHK and contributed to education policy projects in Iraq, Indonesia, Myanmar (Burma), and Syria.
