Junda is a PhD student studying international relations and comparative politics at UW-Madison. Broadly, he is interested in the politics of change in transitional societies. He is particularly interested in two spheres of topics: how the wax and wane of wars and conflicts cause and are caused by societal changes; and how developing countries develop, both economically and politically.

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).
