I grew up in Hong Kong, China and received my BA in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles. I am currently a doctoral candidate in Developmental Psychology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. My research at UM, under the supervision of advisors Toni Antonucci, Jacqui Smith, and Kira Birditt, lies in the areas of romantic and family relations across the life course. Specifically, I am interested in the interplay between work and family life, and the influences of work–life balance on couples’ physical and marital well-being. I am also interested in learning about how other contexts, such as neighborhood and culture, influence family processes and development. Outside of the research realm, I am an avid singer and part of an all graduate student a-cappella group called the GradTONES (Graduate Troupe of Needlessly Educated Singers).
