Reproductive Sociology Research Group


I study the influence of internet and politics on egg freezing practices in China. Also, I explore why the Chinese government ban single women from freezing eggs. My research methods include digital ethnography and interviews. My PhD project is funded by China Scholarship Council. And my supervisors are Prof. Sarah Franklin and Dr. Janelle Lamoreaux.


I spent the first two years of college life in School of International Studies at Peking University. Then I transferred to Johns Hopkins University and received my B.A. in Political Science. I obtained Mphil degree in Modern Society and Global Transformations at University of Cambridge.


My research interests include ARTs policies, the influence of social media on private issues such as sex and marriage, and middle class women in China. I plan to work in NGOs or international organizations on women issues after graduation.
