Qianli Yuan
Qianli Yuan is a first-year Ph.D. student studying public administration at Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy at the University at Albany.

What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
My research interest lies in open government and collaborative governance. Particularly, I am interested in the private and public collaboration to generate public values in the open government data ecosystem. Recently, I have been studying citizen engagement in the process of ICT-driven co-production. CTG is the leading research center for data-driven governance and open government projects. It provides me great opportunities to explore those research topics and further develop my future directions in academia.

What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
Prior to CTG, I finished both my bachelors in political science and master in public administration in Fudan University in China. I have been a research assistant for 2016-2017 at Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy.

What are your plans/goals for the future?
I will pursue an academic career in the future. After graduate from Ph.D. program, I intend to continue my research work back in China. I will keep contributing to the research community of open government through international perspective, especially with experiences in the Chinese context. I will also further expand my research network both in the U.S. and China.

How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
CTG, with its diverse academic background and various research projects, could provide me great opportunities to develop my skills for academic research, social networking, and teamwork. I learnt new perspectives to advance my knowledge about technology in government and explore potential breakthroughs in the future.
