Bamboo Ren 任韵竹

I am Bamboo, a second year Mphil student in social science from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. A 2013 Bachelor in economics from Lingnan University, Hong Kong, I worked as a research assistant at Hong Kong Baptist University in 2013-4; received a MA in history from HKUST in 2014-5; and as an instructional assistant at HKUST, provided teaching support and assisted in other e-learning and MOOC projects in 2015-6.

My current research at HKUST focuses on the history of higher education in modern China using a data analytical approach, informed by the sociology of education and comparative education. My main research project is Social Origins of University Students in China, including Hong Kong, 1900-2010, with special focus on the Republican Period (1911-1949), described in our Projects Pages.
