Jason Yue Hei WONG is an MPhil (Master of Philosophy) student of Sociology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology with First Class Honours. His research interests intersect social gerontology, social demography, family and life course, health and mental health, and social inequality. Particularly interested in studying social determinants of health from a multigenerational perspective, his research draws causal inference with observational data to study intergenerational family relationships and health disparities in old age. Some of his ongoing projects investigate mental health and social participation outcomes of grandparenthood and grandparenting in China. He previously worked as a student research assistant in the Sau Po Centre on Ageing and the School of Public Health at the University of Hong Kong.
