Roselyn Hsueh completed her Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of California at Berkeley this May (2008).  Her dissertation, "China's New Regulatory State: A Bifurcated Strategy Toward Foreign Investment," examines the relationship between China's FDI policy, industrial development, and market reform.  She will spend the 2008-2009 academic year transforming her dissertation into a book manuscript.  Her other research projects include a comparative study of capital liberalization and industrial development in China, India, and Russia and China's foreign economic policy and its implications in Africa.  In fall 2009, she joins the political science faculty at Temple University in Philadelphia as a tenure-track assistant professor.

Roselyn Hsueh's new publication, "China's Regulatory State," is now available from Cornell University Press. Roselyn Hsueh was a Hayward R. Alker Postdoctoral Fellow here at CIS back in 2008-09, with a joint appointment at the US-China Institute. She is now an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Temple University.
