Profile

Brandon Brandon is a Research fellow at the Centre on Asia and Globalisation, and was previously an Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Studies at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. He has written numerous working papers and a book manuscript that examines how countries can credibly communicate their intentions, particularly in the context of a shifting distribution of power. He is now applying these theoretical findings to contemporary US-China relations and East Asian regional dynamics more broadly. Brandon has additional research projects on research methodology, causal inference and the integration of theory and policy, as well as on comparative political development in China and Eastern Europe. He has previously lived and worked in China from 2004-2006, and was a visiting scholar at Tsinghua University in 2010. His research interests include:
