About me

I am a doctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany. Meanwhile, I am reading for a DPhil in Sociology at the University of Oxford. I am also affiliated with the International Max Planck Research School for Population, Health and Data Science. I was a student at the European Doctoral School for Demography, and I hold an MPhil in Social Science from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and a BA in Journalism from Beijing Foreign Studies University.

Research

My research interests include population health, social stratification & inequality, and formal demography. Specifically, my current research investigates inequalities in mortality, retirement lifespan, pension wealth, and the interactions between them in contemporary OECD countries. As a guest researcher at SUDA, I work with local researchers on pension wealth inequalities using Swedish registries.
