Research Areas

Vulnerable Families, Culture, Evaluative Research, Research Methods


I have my interdisciplinary doctoral training in human sciences. I also complete a minor in Quantitative, Qualitative, and Psychometric Methods. My research is to understand how multiple contexts shape child and family outcomes and how scholars and practitioners can promote health and well-being among vulnerable populations. I have three related research lines: vulnerable families, culture, and evaluative research. Before joining the doctoral program at the University of Nebraska, I had served as an assistant project manager in the Gallup Corporation Shanghai office in China. I am excited to launch interdisciplinary and international research and support student growth in OU's Sociology Department.
