My research interests focus on adolescent development, youth health and wellbeing, and the prevention of delinquency across the lifespan, with a particular emphasis on both US and East-Asian societies. My latest research project, funded by the Hong Kong Research Grant Council, investigates delinquency among adolescents in rural China, aiming to raise awareness of delinquency issues in Asian and rural contexts.
In addition to my substantive research interests, I specialize in quantitative methodology. I am particularly interested in developing reliable and valid measures of delinquency, optimizing models for longitudinal survey analysis, and promoting reproducibility in quantitative social science research. I am also exploring the potential of machine learning in the study of youth development.
