B.A. International Politics, Shanghai International Studies University, China, 2012. Although my undergraduate major is not sociology, I do not think that is a problem for my graduate study since there are still some overlaps between political science and sociology. A different background may provide me with a novel perspective. With the observation and reflection about the changing society in China, I find my major interest in social networks, which is the area that calls for further study as new social problems, concerning the relation between social members, emerge frequently in the recent years. I currently work in the lab as an assistant for Professor Melamed on the research about how networks and referential standards affect justice perceptions.
