My name is Chuncheng Liu. I am a Ph.D. student in Sociology/Science Studies Program at University of California, San Diego.

My research interests lie, primarily, at the intersection of social science research in medicine and sexuality studies. I am interested in questions related to power dynamics in clinical medicine and public health; moral, cultural, and political regulation of sexuality; healthcare access for LGBTQ individuals; and the social context/challenges associated with HIV/AIDS.

I am a mixed method researcher, with experience in various approaches to both quantitative and qualitative 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 process behind it.

I have published 12 peer-reviewed papers. You can find my publication themes in my research page, and the full text of my published works here.
