Allison is interested in researching ethnic politics with regard to the Uyghur ethnic minority in China. She spent fourteen months studying Mandarin Chinese and modern political history in China on a Fulbright Fellowship. As a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she co-authored a policy analysis on the effectiveness of market-based mechanisms to reduce pollution in mainland China. Allison speaks Mandarin Chinese and Spanish and knows basic Uyghur.
