My current work focuses on two projects. One is my PhD dissertation, which is to investigate how China engages with global monetary governance specifically looking through the lens of the Group of Twenty. The dissertation seeks to identify ideational tensions underpinning China’s policies of global monetary governance in a broad range of issues such as the reform of international financial institutions, China’s important economic and strategic agendas (e.g. ‘One Belt One Road’ Initiative, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank) that has been highlighted in the process of the G20, and internationalisation of the renminbi. Another project seeks to explain the change of U.S. foreign economic policy towards China in the past decade, from a mixture of cooperation and competition in the Obama Administration to nearly full-blown rivalry in the Trump Administration. It highlights how leadership’s policy narrative plays an important role in shaping U.S. national interest in economic cooperation with China.
