Hometown : Shanghai, China
Current Position: I am currently pursuing a PhD in sociology at the University of Wisconsin- Madison. My quantitative line of work focuses on health inequity. My dissertation is a school ethnography of multilingual students.
Honors Thesis Topic/Advisor and Favorite Class:
My honors thesis explored the identity formation of 1.5 generation Americans under the supervision of Prof. Mary Noonan and Prof. Steve Hitlin. I really enjoyed the social psychology and statistics courses offered by the department. Outside sociology, the creative writing courses contributed to my personal growth as well.
Hobbies: I enjoy watching standup comedies and taking walks by the lake. I currently live with my puppy Mushu who has taught me the joy of just sitting on the sidewalk watching cars.
