Research interests:

I am interested in reproductive health and culture, gender, environment, and Chinese Society. My dissertation follows the pregnancy, childbirth experiences as well as the early stage of infant feeding among a diverse group of women in Shanghai. I argue that the unsettled but drastic economic and social development in post-socialist China has generated a gendered burden that takes shape as anxious mothering for middle-class mothers and culturally exclusive mothering for rural-urban migrant mothers. I have published articles in The China JournalThe Chinese Journal of Sociology, and Sage Research Method Cases.

I received my B.A. and M.A. in Sociology from East China Normal University (Shanghai). Currently, I am living in New Jersey with my husband and our 13-month-old daughter.
