I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at Duke University. My expected graduation date is May 2020.

I received my master’s degree in Statistics (Quantitative Methods) at Columbia University, and my bachelor’s degrees in Sociology and Economics at Peking University.

My research interests include immigration, mental Health, gun violent crime, racial achievement gap, statistics (research areas: causal inference, missing data, meta-analysis, generalized linear models, survey methodology, Bayesian modeling). My dissertation studies how selective migration of Asian immigrants influences their socioeconomic attainment in destination countries under the supervision by Dr. Angel Harris. I am currently a research assistant and statistician at Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine, working with Dr. Jeffrey Swanson on the epidemiology of gun violence and serious mental illnesses. I also conduct methodological research on handling missing data in IPD(individual patient data) meta-analysis on mental illness data at Duke Biostatistics with Dr. Hwanhee Hong.
