I am an assistant professor of Sociology. My research focuses on (1) families in East Asia, (2) how globalization shapes educational strategies and achievement in East-Asian nations, (3) educational achievement, and parental practices among immigrants from East Asia. I am currently examining college entrance exam performance, shadow education, and suicidal ideation in South Korea, as well child behavior problems in Japan and China. I am also examining mental health and substance use among immigrants from East-Asian countries to the US and Canada.
