Student Testimonials

Christina Geisse

The Asian Studies Program was incredible because most professors were undertaking their own research, passionate about their subject of study, and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge with students. It felt fresh and profound at the same time. Inspiring!

I was able to delve deep and focus on the areas of Asian Studies that truly interested me, and therefore gained a much more thorough and developed understanding of my fields of interest, which are applicable to my current career path. Also, the professors are extremely helpful and want their students to succeed. They were very supportive both while I was at UH and after I graduated.

Dr. Shuxian Luo received the Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship!

Congratulations to Dr. Shuxian Luo on receiving the Council on Foreign Relations‘ prestigious Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship, sponsored by the Stanton Foundation.

Dr. Luo joined the Asian Studies faculty this school year as an Assistant Professor. This year she’s a non-resident China Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center, a think tank in Washington D.C, looking at China’s relations with Russia, and Russia’s role in the context of China’s territorial disputes with India and Vietnam. She’s also currently working on a book project, tentatively titled Taking it to the Sea: Escalation Decisions and Strategies in China’s Maritime Disputes. 

The Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship fellowship provides scholars studying nuclear security issues the opportunity to spend twelve months at the Council on Foreign Relations (in New York or Washington, DC office), conducting policy-relevant research. The selection process is highly competitive, with one or two candidates selected each year as fellows.
