I am an Associate Professor of Sociology with a joint appointment in the International Degree Program in Climate Change and Sustainable Development (IPCS) at National Taiwan University. My research primarily employs sociological perspectives to investigate climate change and environmental issues. Since my return to Taiwan, I've actively contributed to domestic climate policy development, and my recent focus has been on exploring the concept of Just Transition in the context of Taiwan.
During my 13 years in the United States, I served as an Assistant Professor at Occidental College for three years. In the academic year 2015-2016, I worked as 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 firmly believe that research is a collaborative endeavor and enjoy working with colleagues from diverse disciplines. For international scholars and students interested in short-term research opportunities in Taiwan, there are several avenues to explore. 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.
