I hold a PhD in Sociology and I currently work as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society at Stanford University. My research interests focus on the sociology of organization, political sociology, civil society, international development and quantitative methods. Particularly, I have published research on NGOs in authoritarian China, nonprofit leaders’ power, and human rights in developing countries. My work has appeared in journals such as The Sociological Quarterly and VOLUNTAS: International Journal of Voluntary and Nonprofit Organizations.
