My research interests mainly focus on the interplay of law, gender, and politics in transitional societies. Currently, I am writing a dissertation titled, “Seeking Divorce in the Countryside: Marital Grievances, Dispute Resolution, and Gender Inequalities in Contemporary China.” This dissertation project has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Social Science Research Council, and the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange. Because of the dissertation research, I recently received the Young Scholar Award issued by the China Times Cultural Foundation.
