I am an assistant professor in Sociology at National Chengchi University.
I received my PhD in Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. Before that, I studied Anthropology at National Taiwan University and received an MA in the Social Sciences at the University of Chicago.
I am interested in educational stratification and I use both qualitative and quantitative methods to pursue my research interest. My dissertation project uses 15 months of participant observation and 85 interviews with high school students, parents, and teachers to examine the process of adolescent elite status reproduction in Beijing, China. Specifically, I look at how elite families navigate the Chinese educational system and strategize against uncertain exam outcomes. In other lines of research, I use longitudinal datasets to examine multigenerational status transmission in Taiwan and internal migration in China.
