Program: PhD Candidate in Public Policy


Long-term care provision in China
China social policy
Aging policy


I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Division of Public Policy at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. My current research explores the factors from the family, the market, and the government that drive the formation of the long-term care provision in China under the rapidly aging background. My research interests are in long-term care provision, health care reform, and topics in social policy that relate to population aging.

I hold a MA degree in Social Policy from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Before my Ph.D. study, I was a research assistant at the Education University of Hong Kong from where the GRF project I worked on examines the sub-national variation of public attitudes towards social policy in urban China.
