Fellow

Matthew P. Robertson is a China Studies Research Fellow with the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation. He is concurrently a Ph.D. student in political science at the Australian National University in Canberra. His research interests include biopolitics, political violence, and authoritarian politics. His dissertation, using computational methods and process tracing, explores the political logic of state control over citizen bodies in the case of China’s organ transplantation industry. Previously he has worked as a reporter, researcher, and translator for several nonprofit organizations, and as an interpreter (from Chinese) for financial services firms. His research using statistical forensics to demonstrate the falsification of Chinese organ donor registry data was published in the leading journal of medical ethics, BMC Medical Ethics. Other peer-reviewed publications he has co-authored have appeared in BMJ Open and The BMJ.
