Me Turquoise

In addition to my work at Tsinghua University, I serve as a resident scholar at the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy, where I run the China and the Developing World Program. My research and writing focus on the “China Model” of development, China’s economic and political relations with resource-rich developing countries, and the governance of China’s urban informal economy. As a part of my Carnegie program I have given presentations on the China Model as well as on China’s political and economic relations with Latin America, with a recent focus on China-Venezuela relations.

I received my Bachelor’s from the University of Puget Sound (1993), a Master’s from Johns Hopkins SAIS (1997) and a PhD from Cornell University (2008).
