Wen-Ti Sung is broadly interested in foreign policy analysis, US–China relations, China’s domestic politics, and Taiwanese electoral politics. His doctoral research investigates the role of epistemic communities in the making of the United States’ policy towards China. By assessing the extent of knowledge-policy engagement, he seeks to reveal the policy influence of intellectuals on shaping American public discourse on and government policymaking towards China at select junctures in postwar American history.
During his research, Wen-Ti has benefited from a resident inaugural summer research scholarship at the Australian Parliamentary Library, an Asia Studies Visiting Fellowship at the East-West Center in Washington, and a Taiwan Fellowship at the National Chengchi University.
Wen-Ti received a Bachelor of Arts (Honours Class I) in International Relations from the University of Queensland, and a Master of International Affairs from Columbia University in New York.
