I specialize in conflict and diplomacy, with a focus on Northeast Asia- mainly, the People's Republic of China (PRC), Taiwan, the two Koreas, and Japan.
I am working on my book manuscript, which explores the idea of nationalism as being akin to a kind of commodity rather than a consciousness, and commodification then, as the set of practices or the process of consuming and (re-)producing the state. I trace the inter-state ramifications of this commodification or 'nationalist entrepreneurialism' in Northeast Asia, specifically within the realm of territorial disputes.
