Jason Kuo is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at National Taiwan University. He received his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, San Diego. Immediately after graduation, he worked at Georgetown University and then taught at National Cheng-chi University.
His fields of research include international relations, comparative politics and applied political methodology. He produces policy-relevant research on globalization and governance, studying why, how and when political cleavages of different emerging kinds arise from international economic integration using experimental and quasi-experimental methods. He also examines why, how, and when leaders matter in different issue areas of international and comparative political economy to complement prevailing institutional accounts for policy convergence and divergence across political units.
