May 06, 2019

China expert Will Norris is one of only twenty recent PhD graduates to become a part of the National Asia Research Program (NARP) fellowship for 2019 and get a $10,000 grant to publish policy-oriented research. The program connects the academic and policy communities and trains rising Asia scholars to develop skills to conduct policy-specific research and brief policymakers.

Dr. Will Norris is currently an associate professor of Chinese foreign and security policy at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University, where he teaches graduate-level courses in Chinese domestic politics, East Asian security, and Chinese foreign policy.

Norris’ class of fellows will research geopolitics and grand strategy, international security and military modernization, domestic transitions and transformations, and nontraditional security issues.

Norris joins colleagues from prestigious universities like Tufts, Johns Hopkins, and Stanford. Norris will attend a two-day policy conference that will include presentations from the fellows and senior Asia experts in June 2019.
