Welcome to my site! I am a senior research specialist at the Covered California team in the Research, Eligibility, and Research Division. I earned my Ph.D. in Sociology and Master's in Demographic Analysis at the University of California, Irvine. I have experience in initiating and managing projects that utilize a variety of quantitative and qualitative approaches to investigate public opinion shifts towards same-sex relationships, sexual minority family relations, gender inequalities, young people’s labor market, and family experiences during the transition to adulthood in the United States, China, and other East Asian societies. You can find out more about my research here.
Trained by top sociologists and demographers, I am proficient in utilizing survey methodologies and performing a range of statistical analyses, including age-period-and-cohort analysis, latent class analysis, survival analysis, cross-national comparative methods, and structural equation modeling.
In the Summer of 2021, I also worked as a graduate research intern at the Marriage Strengthening Research and Dissemination Center (MAST) at Child Trends. During 2020 and 2021, I was a research analyst at the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program.
