Personal Website:


I am a Ph.D. student in sociology and science studies at University of California, San Diego. Broadly speaking, I am interested in social classification and quantification of people. I am a mixed methods researcher, with a rich experience in both qualitative and quantitative methods.

Before my study at UC San Diego, I worked as a research assistant at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Project-China for two years, conducting public health studies and interventions toward Chinese gay, bisexual, and other MSM. With my co-authors, I have published 25 HIV/AIDS related peer-reviewed papers in journals such as Journal of the International AIDS Society, Journal of AIDS, Journal of Medical Internet Research, AIDS & Behaviors, and Global Public Health with more than 100 citations.
