Research Profile Dimitar GUEORGUIEV, assistant professor at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University, received his Ph.D. from UC San Diego in 2014. He specializes in comparative political economy, authoritarian institutions, governance and survey methods. GUEORGUIEV had this to say about the China Research workshops: All schools advocate the importance of cross-pollination and collaboration, but rarely do such efforts succeed. Indeed, they often fizzle out soon after they begin. The workshops at the center are a clear exception. The program has attracted a consistent and diverse group of faculty, graduate students and visiting speakers from a wide range of fields, including economics, political science and sociology. I have personally taken advantage of the workshops on multiple occasions to present my own research as well as to stay tuned in to what others are working on. Having recently transitioned from being a doctoral student at UC San Diego to a faculty position at Syracuse University, I hope to reproduce some of this same spirit and energy offered by the workshops for the benefit of the local China research community here in upstate New York.
