Current research projects include a study of Northeast Asian Perspectives on the US rebalance to Asia; China and the international human protection regime: norm creation and elaboration; a co-authored study on a new framework for the analysis of the IR of East Asia; and a comparative treatment of the US response to the rise of Japan in the 1970s-1980s with the rise of China in the 2000s.
