Junda is a PhD student of international relations and comparative politics at UW-Madison. He is broadly interested in the political economy of production and the global value chain. The two questions that he explores in his recent works are (1) how strategies of economic statecrafts (sanctions, export controls, etc.) affect international economic connections, especially the global value chain, and (2) how industrial policies work in changing the global production and supply chain configurations. Besides the main research sphere, he also has several works on the global politics of elites and inequality, and public opinions in changing societies.

Prior to coming to University of Wisconsin-Madison, Junda obtained a Bachelor of Law in International Politics at Fudan University (2019) and a Master of Art in Politics at Columbia University (2020).
