"Smart Power vs. Soft Power: A New Chapter of Power Politics in the US-China Relations" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association Annual Conference "Global Governance: Political Authority in Transition", Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel, MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, Mar 16, 2011 <Not Available>. 2020-01-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p498623_index.html>

Abstract: : While smart power becomes soundtrack of Obama Administration’s foreign policies, soft power have received increasingly more attention from Chinese policymakers and scholars. This paper compares and contrasts the resources of America’s smart power and Chinese soft power, and discuss on the wielding of these powers in their bilateral relations. There are so many uncertainties between these two gigantic powers in the Asia-Pacific region. Will China adopt a revisionist approach and use its fast growing national power to challenge the status quo power, or continue to stay patient and low-profile in a long term? Will the U.S. step up its efforts to assemble an effective international alliance to contain China’s rise, or allow Beijing to emerge as an active and decisive leader in the Asia-Pacific region and actively engage China into the role of responsible great power? Traditional studies of US-China relations point to an inevitable conflict between a status quo power and a rising power. An analysis of America’s smart power and Chinese soft power as well as their power wielding may provide us some new cues to the future.

Abstract: The resolution of conflicts in the 21st century will depend much more on the judicious use of a combination of soft and hard power to exercise ‘smart power’ in zones of conflict, especially when there are large asymmetries of power between the internation

Publication Type: Graduate Student Paper
Abstract: We develop a powerful novel statistical method to identify genetic variants related to disease..
The new method uses wavelet-transforms on genotypes, with minimal degrees of freedom, to construct a weighted test statistic which captures significant information from multiple gene loci.Simulation is used to compare the power of the new procedure to existing, less general methods. The new statistic has significantly improved power.

"The Power of Power Laws: Applicability of Power Law Distributions to Terrorism Incidents and Casualties" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, San Francisco Marriott, San Francisco, California, Nov 17, 2010 <Not Available>. 2020-01-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p430766_index.html>

Abstract: Power-laws, or a relationship between two variables that is scale invariant, is a type of distribution that describes a large number of natural and social phenomena, from natural disasters to stock market crashes. This analysis examines whether or not terrorist events and casualties follow a power-law distribution. Tested on a large, open-source terrorism dataset provided by the Institute for the Study of Violent Groups (ISVG), separate models for both casualties and incidents were fitted, with findings indicating that power-law distributions were not the best fit for the data. This finding, using a much larger dataset, is contrary to previous studies' findings and suggests that they need to be reevaluated. Additional methodological implications are also developed, including problems dealing with the elimination of outliers.
