Recent Research Projects

  • My primary topic interest is Chinese migration in Southeast Asia, both historical and contemporary. The topic can be dissected into three subsets, namely, its origin (push/pull factors of migration), its evolution (getting the factual parts right) and its consequence. The consequence part can be further divided by regions (the host countries, the origin country and the relationship between them) or by disciplines (economic, social and political). In my research, I seek to combine comparative politics and international relations and use both historiographical and empirical methods to paint a more complete picture of this already well-studied topic. The main scholarly gap I hope to fill is the empirical aspect of migration studies that are ubiquitous in South-North migration studies (e.g. George Borjas and David Card) but are still relatively lacking in South-South migration research.
