I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Population Studies Center of University of Pennsylvania. Before joining Penn, I got my Ph.D of sociology from University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have a broad interest in social sciences with diverse academic background in Statistics, Economics and Social Policy.

I developed causal inference methods and applied advanced quantitative techniques to answer thorny questions in multigenerational mobility, family, health and population aging.  My current empirical research engages large-scale data sets including longitudinal surveys, population register and new sources of administrative data. My works were published on Child Indicators Research, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences(PNAS), and under R&R at Sociological Methodology.
