I am a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology and Demography at the University of Pennsylvania. My research interests include inequality, family, gender, health, and children & youth. Much of my work adopts a cross-national comparative perspective, with a regional focus on East Asia. Broadly, my current research agenda encompasses three lines of work. First, my dissertation project considers gender dynamics in marriage and family, with a focus on the implications of couples' relative socioeconomic status on health and marital stability. The second line of research examines how children's life chances and lives are gendered and stratified across families and societies. Lastly, I also have a keen interest in marital formation, dissolution, and re-partnership. My work has been published in Social Science & Medicine and Demographic Research.
