I am a statistical demographer working predominantly with migration data to better predict past and future movement patterns and gain a richer understanding of how migration varies by core demographic variables such as age, sex, and education. This website contains posts mainly related to my research, including some information on my publications and use of R, including packages I developed.

I am based in the Department of Sociology at the University of Hong Kong. Previously, I have worked in the Asian Demographic Research Institute at Shanghai University, the Vienna Institute of Demography in the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the ESRC Centre for Population Change and S3RI at the University of Southampton.
