Emily de La Bruyère is a senior fellow at FDD with a focus on China policy.

Emily has pioneered novel data collection and analysis tools tailored to Beijing’s strategic and institutional structures. She has extensive Chinese language research and program management experience.

She has testified before the Senate Banking Committee and US-China Economic and Security Review Commission. Emily’s work was the first Western analysis to document Beijing’s China Standards 2035 national plan. She is at the cutting edge of US analysis on China’s military-civil fusion strategy and platform geopolitics, as well as their implications for global security and the economic order. She uses primary-source, Chinese-language materials to provide insight on geopolitical, technological, and economic change for decision-makers.

Emily is a co-founder of Horizon Advisory, a consulting firm focused on the implications of China’s competitive approach to geopolitics.

Her commentary has appeared in publications including the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Tech Crunch, CNBC, Bloomberg, and the National Interest. She holds a BA summa cum laude from Princeton University and an MA summa cum laude from Sciences Po, Paris, where she was a Michel David-Weill Fellow.

She contributes to the China work within FDD’s Center on Economic and Financial Power, Center on Military and Political Power, and Center on Cyber and Technology Innovation.
