Matthew P. Robertson is a doctoral student at the Australian National University and a research fellow in China Studies with the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.
I’m currently doing my PhD in the School of Politics and International Relations at the Australian National University. I am also a research fellow in China studies at the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit human rights organization based in Washington, D.C. My doctoral research focuses on China’s organ transplantation system. I study both its empirical dimensions (using process tracing and computational methods) and the theoretical implications of state control over the bodies of citizens. My broader intellectual interests include philosophy of science, genocide studies, social thought, and more.
