Dissertation Supervision

I supervise undergraduate and MSc dissertations.

I cannot advise MPhil/PhD dissertations as the primary supervisor. As second supervisor, I will only supervise MPhil/PhD dissertations with a primary supervisor already identified. These projects should additionally possess a significant quantitative component and substantive focus that  directly relates to my own research interests, both substantively and geographically.

Substantive Topics for MSc Supervision

Business-government relations, Comparative/International political economy, Financial development/innovation, Firm heterogeneity, Fisheries management, Immigration, Industrial organization, International trade, Monetary policy, Political economy of East Asia, Production networks

I am not interested in the following topics:

Chinese aid/FDI to Africa, Foreign aid, Grand strategy, International institutions

Methodological Approaches for MSc Supervision

Applied econometrics (OLS, MLE, GEE, GMM, matching, etc.), Comparative cases (MDS, MSS), Network analysis
