About Edwin Way

Edwin's interest in international and comparative politics grew out of experiences growing up overseas in Egypt, Burkina Faso and Denmark. Since graduating college he has spent considerable time in China first living and working in Hangzhou, and then working as a study-abroad program coordinator in the summers of 2007 and 2008 in Shandong province. Through a Federal Language and Area Studies grant, he spent a summer studying and conducting research in Taiwan, work that helped contribute to a Master's thesis examining ethnic politics in Taiwan and Northern Ireland. Possible research topics include Chinese industrial and technology policy and ethnic political conflict. In 2010-2011 he worked as a research assistant for Professor Scott Kennedy's Research Center for Chinese Politics and Business.
