The Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC) is delighted to share that Center Fellow Oriana Skylar Mastro is the recipient of the John H. McArthur Research Fellowship for 2022-23 in recognition of her outstanding scholarship.
Awarded by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada), the fellowship provides opportunities for exceptional mid-career scholars working on programs and research areas directly relevant to Canada and Canada’s interests in Asia. It honors the memory of John H. McArthur, a world-renowned Canadian business educator who, among other roles, was dean at Harvard Business School and chair of the APF Canada Board of Directors.
Mastro’s current research projects focus on the U.S.-China great power competition, deterrence in the Taiwan Strait, China’s maritime ambitions, and the China-Russia military relationship.
Prior to her appointment at Stanford in August 2020, Mastro was an assistant professor of security studies at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. She holds a B.A. in East Asian Studies from Stanford University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University.
