Andrew DeWeese is a junior in Pierson College from Charlotte, NC double majoring in Classics and History with a certificate of advanced study in Chinese. His interest in grand strategy spans from present to past, as his academic work focuses on modern-day China and fifth-century Athens. More broadly, he is interested in the rise and fall of the Athenian and Roman empires, as well as the success, failures, and misdiagnoses of great power competition from the classical world and its use today. At Yale, Andrew is a research assistant at the Yale Law School’s Paul Tsai China Center, where he and Senior Fellow Stephen Roach are constructing a comprehensive appraisal of the economic integration between China and Taiwan. He is also President of the Alexander Hamilton Society at Yale, chair of the Light Fellowship Student Advisory Committee, and a World Fellows Liaison at the Jackson School of Global Affairs. Andrew is a two-time awardee of the Richard U. Light Fellowship, which he used to live for several months in Taiwan as a student at National Taiwan University. A violinist at heart, Andrew spends the rest of his time playing orchestral and chamber music with the Yale Symphony Orchestra and Charlotte Piano Trio.
