About me

I am a PhD student in Sociological Demography at Stockholm University. I have received a master degree in both gender studies and sociology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (2018) and a bachelor degree in sociology in China (2015).


My research interest is family demography in general. Most of my previous research projects focus on 1) changing family and partnership dynamics with a particular focus on the role of cohabitation; 2) the interrelationship between migration and family dynamics. I mainly use quantitative methods and survey data and focus on China and other East Asian societies in my previous research experience. One of my studies on how cohabitating couples share housework has been recently published in China Review.
