Areas of Specialty

Dr. Sullivan specializes in quantitative methods. His research examines ethnicity and inequality in China using a mixture of qualitative and quantitative methodologies. He spent over 18 months conducting ethnographic research and unstructured interviews with a group of Uyghur Muslim entrepreneurs in a large Chinese city, and found that as the climate of everyday violence intensified, individuals became more innovative in adopting strategies of resistance to police tactics of control. As a result of the research he conducts, he speaks Mandarin Chinese, as well as Uyghur, Turkish, and German.
