Welcome to my personal site!  

My name is Hsuan and I hold the Provost’s Chair in Public Policy and Global Affairs (2019-) at NTU Singapore, where I joined as a a Nanyang Assistant Professor in the Public Policy and Global Affairs Programme in 2013. I am also a Visiting Professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Helsinki (2019-).

I was previously a postdoctoral researcher at ARENA - Centre for European Studies, University of Oslo (2008-2012); a visiting scholar at SCANCOR, Stanford University (2012); the Academic Coordinator of UACES collaborative research network on the European Research Area (2013-2016); an Associate Fellow at EU Centre Singapore (2013-2019); a writing fellow at the Johannesburg Institute of Advanced Studies, South Africa (February-May 2018); and the Convenor of the ECPR Standing Group on Knowledge Politics and Policies (2016-2019). For the academic year 2018-2019, I was a Fung Global Fellow at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, Princeton University.

Together with Kim Moloney and Michael Bauer, I am the series co-editor of Transnational Administration and Global Policy with Bristol University Press (to be launched in June 2019).

My research interests lie at the intersection of politics, public policy, and comparative regionalism. I am currently researching the emergence and evolution of higher education regionalisms in Asia and Europe, how governments in Asia and Europe compete for talent in a globalised world, academic mobility to and from Singapore, and the ways in which scholarly networks are organised across time. 

I studied political science at Berkeley (BA), European public administration at Leiden (MA), European politics and society at Oxford (MPhil), and politics and international studies at Cambridge (PhD).
