Gan Yumei, PhD graduate from our Department, has just received the Young Scholar Thesis Award 2020.

Gan Yumei, a PhD graduate from our Department who is now an Assistant Professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University- School of Media and Communication, has just received the Young Scholar Thesis Award 2020. It is an annual award and only one person can receive this award in each Faculty at CUHK. Her thesis title is “Choreographing Affective Relationships across Distances: Multigenerational Engagement in Video Calls between Migrant Parents and Their Left-behind Children in China”. This thesis is an exceptionally innovative, exciting and original study of video-mediated conversation in migrant families. While the phenomenon of ‘left-behind children’ has been the subject of many previous studies, this is the first that examines how parents and children actually ‘do’ family in their video calls. Congratulations to Yumei and her thesis supervisor Prof. Christian Greiffenhagen!

甘雨梅是社會學系的一名博士畢業生,及後獲上海交通大學媒體與傳播學院聘請為一名助理教授,她的論文獲得了 “CUHK Young Scholars Thesis Award 2020″,這是一個年度頒發的獎項,每個學院只有一位學生可以獲此殊榮。

她的論文課題為 “Choreographing Affective Relationships across Distances: Multigenerational Engagement in Video Calls between Migrant Parents and Their Left-behind Children in China”,這篇原創論文深入研究了在外務工家庭的視頻交流現象,立意新穎,令人振奮。

儘管”留守兒童”現象已經在此前的研究主題中出現多次,但這篇論文首次省視了現實中父母與留守兒童究竟是如何通過視頻通話保持家庭的情感聯系。

在此恭喜雨梅和她的論文導師Prof. Christian Greiffenhagen!

Yifan Shen, an MPhil graduate from this Department, had published (in 2021) a single-authored paper “The Nonlinear Linkage between Earnings Homogamy and Earnings Inequality between Married Couples” in Demography

Yifan Shen, an MPhil graduate from this Department, had published (in 2021) a single-authored paper “The Nonlinear Linkage between Earnings Homogamy and Earnings Inequality between Married Couples” in Demography–the premier journal for population research [see note below]. Congratulations to Yifan for turning his master thesis into an outstanding research contribution!

Yifan started this project in 2014, his first year at CUHK. His advisor Professor Tony Tam suggested him to try this topic to learn how to do research. He finished the first draft in 2016 which ended up being his MPhil thesis. It was not until two years later (2018), during his second year of PhD at Brown University, that he restarted to work on this paper.

Looking back, he recognizes how crucial the two years he spent at CUHK was to the project as it was during those years that he got the financial and intellectual support to immerse himself in the literature and develop a deep understanding of the question. As he savors the fruitful outcome from this long-running project, he encourages fellow graduate students at CUHK to stay focused and persevere in their intellectual endeavors: “At the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

The Department is really proud of Yifan, not only for his remarkable publication but also for setting an example that speaks loud and clear on the virtue of perseverance in graduate training towards a scholarly career.

Note:

Earnings inequality between couples has been rising in many countries. Yifan’s new paper shows that in both urban China and the United States income homogamy increased over time. Most importantly, the increase in income homogamy between the top 20% of husbands and their wives has played a major role in lifting the overall inequality between couples.

Introducing new faculty members, 2020

Prof. Bo JIANG, Research Assistant Professor (Profile)

Bo Jiang is a Research Assistant Professor in The Department of Sociology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is primarily interested in topics related to transnational crimes and evidence-based policing.  His research relies on interdisciplinary approaches to address policy-relevant issues within criminology and sociology, drawing on methods from computational sciences.  His current work focuses on (1) statistical learning of terrorist organizations; and (2) spatial-temporal analysis of crime hot spots and harm spots.

Prof. Jiang earned a PhD from the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Maryland and MS degree from the Department of Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania.  He spent five years as a Graduate Research Assistant at the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START).  Since 2018, he has held an appointment with the Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge as a Data Analysis Consultant. 

Prof. Jaemin LEE, Assistant Professor (Profile)

Jaemin Lee is a social scientist interested in social networks, mathematical sociology, and computational social science. He studies social influence in the political, economic, and school contexts. His research aims to understand various substantive topics including political polarization, product diffusion, friendship segregation, and intergroup relations. Methodologically, he uses agent-based modeling, field experiments, and longitudinal network analysis. 

A sociology Ph.D. from Duke University, Prof. Lee worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Northeastern University’s Network Science Institute. He received an Outstanding Dissertation-in-Progress Award by the American Sociological Association’s Mathematical Sociology Section and a Paul Lazarsfeld Best Paper Award from the American Political Science Association (Political Communication). 

Prof. Wensong SHEN, Assistant Professor (Profile)

Wensong Shen is an incoming Assistant Professor of Sociology at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He received his Ph.D. degree in Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania in May 2020. His research focuses on education and health, and especially the interaction between education and health in the context of social stratification and inequality. Broadly speaking, Prof. Shen utilizes quantitative methods to explore how individuals and families with different social backgrounds experience the complex process of social stratification, and how such experiences shape their life opportunities and consequences such as education and health.

Prof. Ling ZHU, Assistant Professor (Profile)

Ling Zhu received an MS in Statistics and a PhD in Sociology from Stanford University. Before joining CUHK she was a post-doctoral fellow at the Stanford Center for Poverty and Inequality. Her overarching research interests consist of two substantive topics and one methodological theme: (1) state governance in authoritarian regimes – how the bureaucratic organizations are structured and the bureaucrats are incentivized to maintain a delicate balance between political control (which requires power centralization) and regional development (which requires power de-centralization), (2) mechanisms of reproducing economic inequality, gender segregation, and family advantages/disadvantages in China and in the United States, and (3) understanding misuses of causal inference methodology. The substantive studies are unified by a sociological interest in understanding how political and social institutions work together to shape social structures and often built on newly available big data and state-of-the-art data analytics for causal inference, network analysis, and machine learning techniques.
