I am a research assistant at CHSS in the University of Kent’s School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR). My research expertise and interests focus on health and social care, ageing and social policy. With experience using both qualitative and quantitative methods over 9 years studying the health and social care sector, I have worked on a few policy- and practice- oriented research projects. Straddling the fields of social gerontology and public policy implementation, I especially focus to adapt and extend concepts developed in a Western context to the study of East Asian policy implementation.
Prior to joining CHSS in July 2019, I worked as a research and teaching associate at the School for Policy Studies, University of Bristol. As a research associate (2018-2019), I was involved in the projects including ‘Creating Inclusive Care Home Environments for Older LGBT+ People’ (funder: ESRC), ‘Information and Guidance for Unpaid Family Carers: Reviews of Local Authority Websites in England’ (funder: NIHR School for Social Care) and ‘Death Talk and Loss Talk in an Age of Longevity’ (funder: Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research).
As a lecturer and seminar tutor at the University of Bristol (2016-2019), I have taught “Comparative and International Social Policy” and “East Asian Social Policy” and qualitative and quantitative methods and statistical packages, including “NVivo and Qualitative Analysis”, “Lab Training for Dissertation with SPSS Analysis” and “Segregation and inequality in the UK” (Q-step).back to top
