Hi there, welcome to my homepage! I'm Abby QIN Youran 秦悠然, a Ph.D. student and teaching assistant at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I use mixed methods to study political communication. My way of sticking to my primary research focus is to make everything political so that I can explore anything that draws my attention ;-)

My main lines of research include:

  • Censorship, propaganda, and popular resistance in China

  • Political polarization in electoral democracies

  • Political & social implications of emerging technologies like blockchain
