Current and/or Anticipated Research

I have conducted studies on the relationship of mining pollution, economic development, and the production of social capital among Appalachian miners. The research paper won the award of “Best Graduate Symposium Paper” for The Second Annual Research Symposium held by The Appalachian Research Community.
Currently, I am working on projects that compare the Environmental Movement Organizations (EMOs) between US and China. The specific topics include how to use strain theory to interpret the development of EMOs, whether the oil spill occurred in China recently has the same social impact with the oil spill happened in US in 1970s, and how to incorporate the theory of environmental sociology, political sociology, and globalization to explain ecology deterioration caused by outsourcing.
