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 sociological perspectives to study climate change and the environment. Since I moved back to Taiwan, I have been involved in the domestic climate policymaking, and most recently, I am spending lots of time thinking about Just Transition in Taiwan.
In my prior 13 years in the United States, 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.
I believe that research is a a team sport and enjoy collaborating with colleagues across disciplines. For international scholars and students seeking short-term research opportunities in Taiwan, there are various avenues available. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of Taiwan offers the Taiwan Fellowship program, while National Taiwan University, along with my department, frequently hosts visiting students and scholars. If you are interested in collaborating with me, please feel free to reach out by email.
