Areas

Gender, family, sexuality, low fertility, social demography, and quantitative methods

Research Interests

My primary research interests lie in the intersection of gender, family and sexuality, as well
as social demography and quantitative methodology. Specifically, I am interested in how
attitudes become gendered; how gender inequalities are produced and reproduced in private
spheres; and the linkage between low fertility and gendered consequences.
Currently, my research is concerned with the endorsement of sexual double standards of
marital infidelity among Chinese millennials, and women’s roles and agency in China’s
family planning policy.
