Personal profile

Research interests (short)

My PhD at King’s College London focuses on the notion of ‘enemy’ in International Relations. I analyze the ways in which it is strategically employed for political purposes, examining its usage, locations, and underlying motivations. Specifically, my research delves into the integral role of enemization in the formation of Chinese nationalism under Xi Jinping's leadership, utilizing a comparative case study approach.
