My research approach combines both quantitative and qualitative methodologies to delve into gender disparities in criminal offending, victimization, and the processes within the criminal justice system across the United States, China, and the global landscape.
Beyond my primary research focus, I am presently engaged in multifaceted studies. These include examining family dynamics, investigating shifts in political trust stemming from the pandemic, and addressing the concerning issue of hate crimes against Asian Americans during this critical period.
