Zhenhuan (Reed) Lei

I am a Ph.D. candidate of political science at the Department of Politics at New York University. I study comparative political economy with a regional focus on China. Before studying at NYU, I received an M.A. in Economics and an M.P.A. from University of Southern California in 2016. I studied English  literature and economics at China Foreign Affairs University from 2010 to 2014. I co-founded the Quantitative China Studies Seminar in 2017 and coordinated the conference since then.
