I am an Associate Professor of Sociology at National Taiwan University. I am also an affilaited faculty in NTU's International Degree Program in Climate Change and Sustainable Development (IPCS). 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.
Before I returned to Taiwan in summer 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.
I view research as a team sport and enjoy learning from colleagues across disciplines. For international scholars and students, Taiwan's Ministry of Science and Technology has a postdoctoral program on rolling basis, send me an email if you're interested in working with me.
