Donghui Wang was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Paul and Marcia Wythes Center on Contemporary China. She received a dual-title Ph.D. in Rural Sociology and Demography from Pennsylvania State University. Her research interest is positioned at the intersection between population health, stratification and development. The objective of Donghui's current research is to examine how culture-related concepts, including norms, attitudes and aspirations, are related to demographic behaviors and individual well-being. This broad interest is being translated within different substantive areas of sociology, including aging, transition to adulthood and fertility. Her research has traversed rural and urban spaces in China. She approaches her research from both spatial and life course perspectives and utilizes multiple methodological tools, including spatial, multilevel, longitudinal analysis and computational and demographic techniques. Donghui's previous work appeared in journals such as Demographic Research, Population Space and Place, Rural Sociology, and The Journal of Rural Health.
