My professional interests include East Asian politics and international relations, comparative politics, and international relations, particularly modern diplomacy. I am currently writing a book entitled The East Asian Quadrangle which examines the dynamic constants of the relationship of the four major powers in East Asia from the 1890s to the present day. I also have a personal website available.
