I am broadly interested in economic sociology, historical sociology, urban sociology, sociology of culture, comparative political economy, and labor issues. A central interest driving my past and ongoing projects is political economic transformations and social consequences in China since 1949. My dissertation examines the entanglement of historical legacies, human lives, and global/national political economic transformations in northeast China, the once socialist heavy industrial heartland that is now the epitome of the Chinese “rustbelt.”
