Assistant Professor

Lingnan University


I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Social Policy at Lingnan University in Hong Kong. My research interests lie in the intersections between cultural sociology, subjective well-being, and social stratification, and I use quantitative methods to investigate these topics. I have had the privilege of studying in three different cultures, which has shaped both my research and my personal identity. In Chile, I developed a passion for my field and gained a strong background in quantitative methods. In the Netherlands, I learned the importance of theory in social research and how theoretically-driven methods can lead to high-impact research. Today, Hong Kong is my intellectual, social, and cultural environment, where Western and Eastern scholastic traditions meet.
