Wang Yiwen is currently a graduate student majoring in Demography at Renmin University of China. Her research interests lie in the fields of migration, family and marriage, gender, health, life course, race and ethnicity and social stratification. Specifically, her research interests flow from two lines of experiences. One is about how social integration and work-related stress can affect migrant workers’ mental health. Another line of inquiry throughout recent research experiences is issues regarding gender, marriage and family. Her on-going research intends to explore how gendered outcomes and family patterns affect the migration of men and women, and how migration acts as a shaping force in reconfiguring family and marital practices in China.
