I am a Ph.D. student in Sociology/Science Studies at University of California, San Diego. My research interests primarily lie at the intersection of sociology of knowledge/expertise, medical sociology and sexuality studies.
I am interested in questions related to performative boundary making in in biomedicine and public health; moral, cultural, and political regulation of sexuality; social determinants of LGBTQ's health (particularly HIV/AIDS). I am a mixed method researcher, with experience in various approaches to both qualitative and quantitative analysis. In the past, I have worked on several projects, mostly regarding social context of men who have sex with men (MSM)'s sexual and healthcare utilization behaviors. I am currently working on a project to rethink the MSM category and the knowledge production and practices behind it.
I have published 17 peer-reviewed papers on journals such as Journal of the International AIDS Society, Journal of AIDS, Journal of Medical Internet Research, AIDS & Behaviors, and Global Public Health. You can find details of my publications in the research page and my Google Scholar page.
