Hi! I am a PhD candidate in sociology at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. My research interests include religion, family, health, and East Asia. My dissertation examines the ecological effects of religion on population health and mortality in mainland China. My research also investigates topics associated with religious diversity, religious ecology, and interreligious families.
I am currently a graduate student instructor in the Purdue University Department of Sociology , a research assistant at the Center on Religion and the Global East, and an editorial assistant for the Review of Religion and Chinese Society.
