Zhenhuan (Reed) Lei

I am a Ph.D. candidate of political science at the Department of Politics at New York University. I will join University of Wisconsin-Madison as an assistant professor at Department of Political Science and La Follette School of Public Affairs in 2020 fall. My research focuses on various political and policy issues, such as infrastructure investment, public finance, bureaucratic incentive schemes, and resource allocation 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.
