India: Using data from the India Human Development Survey (IHDS), I examine the trend and variation in educational assortative mating during the period of 1970-2012 (Demography 2020). I am also interested in gender differences in the health implications of widowhood (GSA 2018), and caste inequalities in social capital and mortality in India (PAA 2019).
China: I study how the intergenerational relationship is related to old age support (IJAHD 2016) and older adults’ psychological well-being (PH 2018). I am also interested in the impact of eldercare on employed children’s well-being, including their jobs and income (JCCG 2017) and mental health (GSA 2018). Recently, I move beyond family to explore various social determinants of health, including social networks (AMH 2019) and neighborhood environments (ICSA 2018).
Taiwan: In the context of Taiwan becoming the first in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage, I am interested in comparing relationship dynamics between same-sex and different-sex couples (DR 2019), which won the Poster Award in the PAA 2018. I am also interested in how intergenerational coresidence is associated with romantic relationship experiences (CSR 2019). Both studies have used data from the Taiwan Education Panel Survey and Beyond (TEPS-B).
