Yao Lu (Department of Sociology, Columbia University) focuses on social stratification and inequality, with a primary emphasis on (1) how migration intersects with sociopolitical processes to shape inequalities in receiving and origin societies, and (2) how social and demographic processes influence political development. Within these general areas, she has engaged a range of research fields in labor market inequality, collective action, health, families and child development, and gender. She has pursued this research agenda from a comparative perspective, using data from multiple settings and directly comparing different contexts.
