Jason Liu is a second-year undergraduate student at UC Berkeley majoring in Political Science. His academic interests include studying global cooperation around the “issues of the future” (automation, climate refugees, data revolution, etc.), developing economies, and the impact a rising China has on the world. Jason hopes that during his time at BASC, he is able to support BASC’s mission of producing credible and actionable knowledge for decision-makers in both the public and private spheres. In addition to working at BASC, Jason is also a research associate at The Blum Center for Developing Economies, heavily involved with UC Berkeley’s international relations clubs and church community, and a student ambassador for UC Berkeley’s Study Abroad Program. When Jason has free time, he enjoys travel videography, tennis, running cross country, exploring new places, reading, and playing piano.
