Jacque Gao's Research Site

Welcome to Jacque's research site! I am currently a PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Rochester. My specializations are formal political theory, comparative political economy (CPE), international political economy (IPE), and authoritarian politics. My research has been accepted for publication in International Organization, The Review of International Organizations, Journal of Theoretical Politics, and Social Choice and Welfare.

I received my MA degree in Economics from Stony Brook University in 2015, where I have taught several undergraduate level economics courses. I received my Bachelor degree in Global Business and Information System from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2012.

Before coming to the US, I've studied and worked in several different countries and regions, including Poland, France, Russia, Hong Kong, and India.
