I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS), Princeton University. I am also affiliated with the Office of Population Research (OPR) and Department of Sociology. I earned my Ph.D. (2016) and M.Phil. (2012) in Social Science from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), and B.L. (2010) in Sociology from Zhejiang University.
I am interested in, from a comparative perspective, understanding how social and family context shapes individual behavioral outcomes. My research broadly concerns Family and Kinship, Migration, Health, Effect of Early Life on Later Life, Inequality and Stratification, and Comparative Historical Demography.
