Hsu Huang is a third-year sociology PhD student at Brown University. He obtained his bachelor and master's degrees at Renmin University of China, European University at Saint Petersburg, and King's College London, and was a visiting fellow at Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University. He studies intellectual-industrial and intellectual-governmental collaborations in countries with strong indigenous institutional traditions like Russia and China. His current project investigates how normatively/ideologically threatening but technically/professionally useful expertise gets incorporated into highly ideologized states or enterprises through painstaking trade-offs, with Soviet sociology as the case. Beyond research time, Hsu Huang is a huge fan of National Basketball Association and real-time strategy video games.
