Research overview

My research interests are in the intersection of social media and contemporary Chinese politics. I am also interested in the Chinese traditional thought-Daoism, and its relations to the concept of governmentality formulated by French philosopher Foucault. In my thesis, I focus on how the Chinese government and Chinese citizens build relations with each other on social media platforms, especially on Weibo and WeChat, and in turn how different designs of social media platforms affect the relationships between them.
