My research interests are gender inequalities in the family and the labour market, marriage, the gender division of labour, time use research, welfare and public policy regimes in Western and East Asian societies, ethnicity and migration studies.

My current project GenTime, funded by a European Research Council Consolidator Grant (2018-2026), aims to investigate trends in gender inequality in time use in East Asian and Western societies in the last three decades.

My most recent research topic is about the migration of Hong Kong people to the UK. I conducted surveys to collect data of potential migrants from Hong Kong and have estimated the size, migration planning, and socio-demographic profiles of Hong Kong migrants.




I have supervised doctoral and master students on topics of gender, family sociology, comparative family research, time use, and social inequalities. I would welcome applications in these areas and in empirical sociology.
