I am a Ph.D. student in sociology and science studies at University of California, San Diego. My research focuses on Science and Technology Studies (STS), politics and medical sociology, with specific interests in social classification and quantification of people. I am a mixed methods researcher, with a rich experience in both qualitative and quantitative methods and an increasing interest in computational social science. Right now I am working on several projects examining different classification situations, from credit score systems to global health classification "men who have sex with men (MSM)."

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 global health studies and interventions toward Chinese gay, bisexual, and other MSM on HIV/AIDS issues. With my co-authors, I have published 27 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.  You can find details of my publications in the research page or my Google Scholar page.

As a person who was born in the North China but lived in Guangzhou for six years, I developed a love for Cantonese food but only a limited skill of Cantonese.
