The main components of his current research program include a series of studies on the role of risk attitudes in elite selection and research on propaganda in China. He has collected original biographical data of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee Members in recent decades and conducted unique political elite survey experiments in China. Fengming's previous work appeared in journals such as Political Communication.
