I am an Associate Professor of Sociology and have joint appoitment with the International Degree Program in Climate Change and Sustainable Development (IPCS) at National Taiwan University. My research mainly draws from economic and environmental sociology to study climate change and the environment. In recent years, I also branched out my research interests to race, gender, food, and other topics. I view research as a team sport and enjoy learning from colleagues across disciplines.
Before I returned to Taiwan in 2019, I was an Assistant Professor at Occidental College for three years. During 2015-2016, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard Kennedy School. I earned my Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and joint master’s degrees from the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (MEM) and the International and Development Economics (IDE) program at Yale University. Before shifting to my social science career, I majored in chemical engineering at National Taiwan University.
For international scholars and students, there are plenty of oppurtunities to do short term research stay in Taiwan. Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) has the Taiwan Fellowship program; National Taiwan University and my departent regularly hosts visiting students and scholars. Send me an email if you're interested in working with me.
