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. You can find my publication themes in my research page and my Google Scholar page here.
