University Lecturer, University of Cambridge

I am interested in social stratification, educational inequality and life course research, with a particular focus on low- and middle income countries. 

Previously, I was postdoctoral researcher in the project "Life Course and Family Dynamics in a Comparative Perspective" at the Department of Sociology, University of Oxford. I completed my doctoral thesis (“Beyond Filial Piety: Intergenerational Relations and Old Age Security in Contemporary China”) at the Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences.

My research has been published or is forthcoming in journals such as the Journal of Marriage and Family, Sociology and the Journal of Family Issues (see Google scholar).

Research Areas: Education, Social Stratification, Life Course.
