Currently, he is working on a book project that examines how East Asian states assess the intentions of, and the threats posed by, a rising China.

His research has been funded by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of China, Fulbright Taiwan, China Times Cultural Foundation, and the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange, among others.
