Welcome! I am a PhD candidate at Department of Political Science, Duke University.
I study the political economy of development with a focus on state building in China. Much of my work examines the role of autocratic elites in state building. I also study the relationship between political competition and state building. I combine statistical methods with extensive archival research.
In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, and doing yoga. I am a badminton beginner and interested in learning climbing and tennis.
Name guide: "Peng Peng" are different characters in Chinese.
